Fire Damages Nearly a Dozen Homes at Pennsylvania Apartment Complex

Fire officials say flames swept through an eastern Pennsylvania apartment complex, causing extensive damage to a unit of about a dozen homes.

More than a dozen firetrucks and ambulances responded to the blaze at the Parkland View Apartments in Upper Macungie Township shortly before noon Sunday.

Gusting winds rapidly spread the fire from the ground floor to the rooftop area, sending flames 20 feet above the two-story homes.

Chief Arlan Wright of Goodwill Fire Company No. 1 of Trexlertown said he knew of no injuries to residents. The flames were declared under control at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
