Norristown Firefighters along with numerous firefighters from the surrounding area tackled two house fires in less than 24 hours. The first fire in the 1200 Blk of Powell St came in around 11:45pm. Upon arrival, fire was already showing from the second floor windows and extending to the third floor. Firefighters also battled bitter cold temperature where the hydrants froze. Special thanks to Plymouth Community Ambulance, Narberth Ambulance and SEPTA for providing rehab and warming buses.
The second fire occurred on the 200 Blk of Haws Ave. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to a second floor bedroom.
