Emergency personnel called to East Allen Twp. trailer fire

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 by PAUL CMIL in Police Log

East Allen Township Volunteer Fire Department and its mutual aid partners were called to a fire Aug. 19 at the central transportation hub off Chrisphalt Drive.

Officials would not comment on the cause of the fire, but it appears to have originated in a trailer transporting dry goods. The tight quarters called for a heightened response.

Original reports, later considered unfounded, indicated that chemicals were on fire and threatened to spread to other parked units. A similar fire occurred at the terminal a little over a year ago.
