Early on this New Years

January 1, 2019

Early on this New Years Day, at 1:30 AM, firefighters responded to a residential building fire in the Towamencin Condominiums. Police arrived first and were told that two people were unaccounted for. Police, followed by initial arriving fire crews, went inside and quickly determined that everyone was out. The fire was rather extensive damaging three properties which are now unlivable. Everyone in the homes were able to escape the fire without injury, one firefighter received a hand laceration.
We're thankful for the response of our firefighters and the assistance we received from the Towamencin Township and Pennsylvania State Police, Harleysville Community Fire Company, Skippack Fire Company, Worcester Volunteer Fire Department, North Penn Volunteer Fire Company, Lansdale Volunteer Medical Service Corps, Harleysville Area Emergency Medical Service, North Penn Goodwill Service and coverage from the Perseverance Fire Company Souderton.

We’re reminded that fire is unpredictable and spreads quickly. Early detection and evacuation are essential. Check to make sure you and your home are prepared.
