Multiple homes burn in Wilson Borough, PA – Lots of videos & radio traffic

The Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania has an abundance of videographers who specialize in fire. A multi-alarm fire Friday night around 10:20 p.m. at 1824 Ferry Street in Wilson Borough (Northampton County) seemed to bring out many of them and others.

Above is video from Dan Clerico of Northeast Bravest. Dan’s drone video is below. Immediately below is video from Bill Rohrer of newsworking that concentrates on the rear of the buildings. Still pictures and more from Bill, here. More video below from Mike Nester (Facebook page),, and Paul Strikwerda.

Here’s an excerpt from Newsworking’s coverage (with still pictures):

Chief 25-52 arrives and reports fire showing from two porches on a 2 1/2 story duplex.  At 20:25 the chief orders an additional Engine from the City of Easton and the F.A.S.T. from station 23.

The fire eventually extended to the duplex on the exposure side 2.  The original fire building was completely destroyed.  The roof eventually collapsed into the 2nd floor.
