Upper Macungie Twp., PA- On the evening of January 9th just before 23:00 hrs, Lehigh County 911 Center dispatched Fogelsville, Upper Macungie and Trexlertown fire companies to a 2 1/2 story dwelling fire. This was located at 6512 Memorial Rd. in the Kuhnsville section of the township.

Upon arrival, Fogelsville's Chief found heavy fire on a second floor rear deck and requested a second alarm. Three mutual aid companies were activated along with a later request for more manpower from two more companies. Fogelsville's ladder tower vented the westside of the building while Trexlertown's ladder worked on the eastside.

There were no known injuries; as the fire darkened down, some companies remained on the scene dealing with hot spots and overhaul.
