While the 132nd Annual Firemen's Association of the State of Pennsylvania parade was in full swing, companies covering for Albrightsville and Lake Harmony Fire Companies were called to 286 Penn Forest Trail, Towamensing Trails Community Development, in Albrightsville Saturday after the single story home started filling with smoke.
When firefighters arrived, they quickly determined the cause to be loose insulation placed under a recently installed water heater. Firefighters ventilated the home. No serious injuries were reported and property loss was limited to smoke damage.
Responding were fire companies from Coaldale and Penn Forest and Lehighton Ambulance.
