The Cumberland County Coroner’s Office has released the names of the two people killed Monday morning in a fire in Monroe Township. Jerome Guise, 34, of Boiling Springs, was a firefighter with the Mount Holly Springs fire department, Coroner Charley Hall said. Guise was killed when the front porch of the home on the 1500 block of Boiling Springs Road collapsed while he was fighting the fire. Resident Jessica Diehl, 36, died inside the home during the fire. A man who lived there was severely injured and rushed to the hospital. A dog was also killed in the fire, officials say. “All the firefighters around here are volunteers. They have a very dangerous job,” Pennsylvania State Police spokeswoman Trooper Megan Ammerman said at the scene. “The fire and police, we’re all family. It’s a very difficult time for the firefighters in the area, especially.”
