Fire at CVS draws 6 com­pa­nies

The Morning Call - - STATE / REGION - — Kayla Dwyer

Crews from six fire de­part­ments re­sponded to a CVS store in South White­hall Township early Mon­day morn­ing for a fire, of­fi­cials say.

Three township vol­un­teer fire com­pa­nies Greenawald­s, Cetro­nia and Wood­lawn were called to the store on the 3000 block of Til­gh­man Street, near Cedar Crest Boule­vard, at 2:45 a.m. for a fire in progress, ac­cord­ing to a Face­book post by the Greenawald­s de­part­ment. Crews from Catasauqua, Al­bur­tis and Western Salisbury Township also re­sponded.

Cetro­nia fire of­fi­cials de­scribed the fire as a “large out­side fire that ex­tended into the roof area” in a Face­book post Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The bulk of the fire was in the back of the build­ing, ac­cord­ing to the Greenawald­s de­part­ment. Crews re­mained on scene un­til about 5 a.m.

Pic­tures of the fire’s af­ter­math show some dam­age to a rear stor­age sec­tion, but the ex­tent of dam­age is un­clear.

The store re­mained closed as of Mon­day af­ter­noon. It is un­clear how long the clo­sure will last as crews make re­pairs.
