Allentown row home fire destroys 10 homes, displaces 30 people

Thirty people were left homeless and half a block of row homes in Allentown were destroyed by an early morning fire Sunday that woke residents with a thunderous crash. The fire — which Allentown police Chief Glenn Granitz and fire Capt. John Christopher said around noon they were not calling an explosion, despite earlier reports — began just after 3 a.m. at 726 N. Fountain St. Officials were still working to determine the cause of the fire, Christopher said. A certified explosives specialist from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was on the scene. “It’s a real mess here right now,” Christopher said..........Melissa Holderman, who lives around the corner, said she woke to the sound of what she thought was an explosion. Her husband told her he thought it was something "crashing into a building.” Ana Rivera woke up in her home at 722 N. Fountain St., two doors away from where the fire began, to what sounded like two big trucks crashing. “It’s something unexplainable,” she said, recounting the morning. Source
