A family of three has been displaced after a fire broke out at their home along Route 873 in Washington Township Tuesday morning.
The two-alarm fire caused severe damage to the home located in the 5300 block of Route 873, just north of Slatington. No injuries were reported.
Slatington Assistant Fire Chief Jason Nicholas said the fire broke out just before 6 a.m., at which point the Slatington, Walnutport and Emerald fire companies were dispatched to the scene.
"We arrived to find heavy smoke," Nicholas said. "Within a few minutes, flames began shooting from the roof."
