Possible Fire Briefly Blocks Main Street
Open Door Ministries employees called emergency services; no fire evident
Four local fire companies responded to an emergency call from the Open Door Ministries building at 348 Main Street, Royersford, this afternoon.
Spring City, Royersford, Limerick and Linfield Fire companies all responded to the call.
There was no visible smoke coming from the building. Patch spoke to an Open Door employee named Ashley who said there was a strong smell that she would "characterize as burning wire" earlier today. The odor went away, then came back about twenty minutes before the emergency call, Ashley said.
Ashley also told Patch that the air conditioner in the building had stopped working and the heat came on.
Firefighters were observed entering and exiting the building via the roof, but no fire-suppression measures were taken.
Open Door employees were seen re-entering the building and then leaving with their belongings.
