Berks County motel fire displaces dozens


A fire at a motel in Muhlenburg Township temporarily displaces dozens of residents. The fire broke out at Klein’s Motel, located in the 4800 block of North Fifth Street Highway around 11am. Wind-fanned flames pushed the fire to 5 alarms. The Fifth Street Highway is shutdown in the area of the fire. At this time, there are no reports of injuries. A Red Cross aid on the scene says many victims claim the motel as their primary residence. They are out of their rooms for the moment because utilities at the motel had to be shut down. The fire was in a part of the motel where the family that manages it resides and has a storage area.IMG_20140423_141407819_HDR
