1 Person Hurt In Hotel Fire

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- At least one person has been injured in a two-alarm fire in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The blaze broke out shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday along Route 611 in Forks Township, Northampton County. The building houses the Mineral Springs Hotel and includes a bar and restaurant with upstairs apartments.

Emergency officials first responded to a complaint of domestic disturbance at that establishment, and arrived to find heavy smoke engulfing the building and flames shooting from the top floor and roof.

Emergency officials said one person was taken to a hospital to be treated for burns.

There's no immediate word on what sparked the fire.
