Five Displaced in Wyndmoor Fire
A fire rips through a house in the corner of East Gravers Lane and Stenton Avenue.
A house fire in the 500 block of East Gravers Lane in Wyndmoor displaced five residents and closed the street for about five hours.
According to Springfield Township Fire Marshal Charles Baily, the fire started at about 7 a.m. The house was occupied when the fire started, but everyone escaped unharmed. No fire fighters were injured.
The house, a large 3-plus story structure in the corner of East Gravers Lane and Stenton Avenue, is a one-family dwelling, Baily said.
“It’s a huge, old house,” Baily said. “It’s got a lot of rooms and an open 3-story staircase.”
Baily said the residents have made arrangements to stay with local friends or relatives.
The last fire fighters started packing up and leaving the scene at about 12:15 p.m.
The cause and origin of the fire are under investigation, Baily said.
