A fast-moving fire extensively damaged a Carbon County home Christmas day.
The fire was first reported at 2 p.m. when reports of flames shooting from a home at 618 Old Stage Road in Towamensing Trails, Penn Forest Township.
When firefighters arrived on scene flames were through the roof. Quick response and good tactical firefighting saved a major portion of the two-story wood frame single-family dwelling. Workers at the scene Monday reported the home is owned and occupied by John Hom.
