Upper Hanover Twp., PA - On Thursday, July 9th at 8:20 P.M., East Greenville Fire Company, along with several other fire companies in the Upper Perk Valley, were dispatched to a building fire on Blommer Dr. in the township.

Upon arrival, Chief 38 had smoke showing from the rear of the building. He called Montgomery County Dispatch to put in a second-alarm for additional help because of the severity of the fire and the heat and humid conditions at the present time.

Some small flames were visible, but were quickly doused with hand lines on the upper part of the building. The fire was brought under control within the half hour. There were no injuries reported and the cause of the fire is pending the outcome of an investigation.

Assisting East Greenville Fire Co. were Pennsburg, Red Hill, Green Lane, Hereford, Eastern Berks, Milford Twp., Siesholtzville and Trumbauersville. Upper Perk, Harleysville and Bally EMS units along with Fire Police from East Greenville, Pennsburg, Red Hill and Siesholtzville also responded.
