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.

This house had a fire about six weeks ago. Very suspicious.

Quite frankly Mr.Affel, you are an idiot. The owner was rescued after an injury and suffered a subsequent stroke on Christmas Eve. The family has been through enough without your malicious innuendo.

I agree with you, Babalouie - the family has been through enough without having to deal with malicious posts. My prayers are with the family. God bless them!

These are nice folks, they have gone through a lot in the last several months. The death of a father, the son had a stroke on Christmas Eve and was hospitalized for a few weeks then a hip replacement now this tragedy. Instead of posting stupid false comments say a prayer for them. God be with all of them.
