Upper Macungie Twp., PA - On the evening of January 9th, just before 11:00 P.M., Lehigh County 911 Center dispatched Fogelsville, Upper Macungie and Trexlertown fire companies to a two-and-a-half story dwelling fire 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 additional companies. Fogelsville's ladder tower vented the westside of the building while Trexlertown's ladder worked on the eastside. As the fire darkened down, some companies remained on scene dealing with hot spots and overhaul. There were no known injuries.
