SINKING SPRING, Pa. (AP) – A three-alarm fire has leveled an apartment building under construction in eastern Pennsylvania.
Emergency officials in Lower Heidelberg Township said the blaze broke out around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Legacy at the Papermill complex. The building was going to be apartments for people age 55 and over.
Firefighters said the three-story building, consisting of just plywood and studs, burned to the ground.
