Reading, PA - Around 5 A.M. firefighters were awoken for a box alarm in the area of North 2nd & Park Streets. Engine 3 arrived with a vehicle burning into a row of garages. Firefighters began a hose line stretch down the street to access the fire. Chief Banke (Car 5) arrived and reported the address as the rear of 225 Walnut Street. Crews knocked the fire down and while ladder companies opened up the garages and checked the roof for further fire spread. No injuries were reported, the Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
