Above is video from  of a four-alarm fire yesterday in Mt. Carmel, Pennsylvania (Northumberland County). Below is video taken a little later and posted at . The fire was reported at 8:11 AM in the 200 block of E. Second St and took two hours to bring under control.

Rob Wheary, RepublicanHerald.com:

Incident commander Clayton Hubler, Mount Carmel Rescue Squad, said a single row home at 242 and the double homes at 244 and 246 E. Second St. were destroyed, while a single home at 236 E. Second St. suffered exterior water damage. The double homes at 248 and 250 E. Second St. were also damaged when firefighters broke windows and cut holes in the roofs for ventilation.

“We were faced with limited manpower and had a hydrant issue, which limited our water supply,” Hubler said. “At that point, we called in a tanker brigade to help.”

There were too many fire trucks pulling water from three hydrants in too small of an area, but it did not hinder the suppression of the fire, he said.
