Three firefighters suffered minor injuries while battling a fire in a two-story commercial garage Friday in Freemansburg, the borough’s emergency management coordinator said.
Sending thick gray smoke into the sky, the fire was reported a little before 4:15 p.m. in the garage used for storage beside the Willow Grove Hotel, 655 Main St.
Authorities closed off Main Street between Freemansburg Avenue and Washington Street for the response.
The cause remained under investigation by the Palmer Municipal Fire Department’s fire marshal, said Jonathan Rossi, Freemansburg’s emergency management coordinator.
