When firefighters got a 911 call for a house fire on the1300 block of Brown Avenue, they responded and were greeted with heavy fire through the roof of the house, officials said. This house sits about a block away from the firehouse. Fire crews were able to put a quick knock on the fire and spent time dousing hot spots and venting the house of smoke.
Croydon Fire Company was on scene and helped locate problem areas with their drone. There were no injuries reported. There were reports that the occupants were woken up by neighbors banging on windows. As you can see from the above video from Dawn Altstatt, the fire appears to have originated in the garage. A cause has not been determined.
