With the holiday weekend right around the corner, we would like to remind everyone of the current laws and regulations in Pennsylvania regarding fireworks.
-Pennsylvanians are allowed to purchase “consumer fireworks,” which contain up to 50 milligrams of explosive material. This includes firecrackers, Roman candles and bottle rockets.
-Anything with more than 50 milligrams of explosives, like the professional-grade fireworks you’d see at a sports game or public festival, are still off-limits to the average consumer and require special licensing or permits.
-You must be more than 150 feet away from any “occupied structure” — defined as “any structure, vehicle or place adapted for overnight accommodation” or business — whether or not any people are present there.
-You can’t set them off on public or private property without express permission of the owner.
-You can’t set them off from, within or toward a building or vehicle.
-You can’t set them off if you’re under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
We hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend and please remember to follow the above regulations! ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday afternoon a strong line of storms came through our area. Around 1300 hours, township companies along with companies 14, 52, and RIT and MICU 23 were dispatched to the 600 block of Morris Lane for a house fire with reported entrapment. Assistant 65A (Artingstall) arrived on scene and reported a 2 story single family with heavy fire showing from the delta side of the home. Assistant 65A was advised by a homeowner that there was still an occupant trapped on the second floor. Ladder 65 and Quint and Squad 52 arrived and immediately went to work attacking the fire and searching for the trapped victim. Initial crews located the victim on the second floor and removed them. The victim was turned over to awaiting EMS. The fire was brought under control at the 20 minute mark. Crews remained on scene for several hours overhauling. Unfortunately the victim succumbed to his injuries. Assistant 65A had the command.
The fire is currently under investigation by the township Fire Marshall, State Fire Marshall, CID, and Township Detectives.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family involved.
