Six townhomes caught on fire in Cecil Township on Wednesday. Crews were called to the scene at Georgetown Estates on Farm Road near Valley Brook Country Club. The call came in around 3:45 p.m. Four townhomes were destroyed while two others were damaged. Officials said the fire started in the garage of an end unit. Cecil Township's fire chief said some people were home at the time but everyone got out and there were no injuries. "We had heavy fire showing in two of the townhouses," Chief Noel McMullen said. "The fire got up above early on and traveled through the attic, spread to two other townhouses." Before firefighters arrived, neighbors like Ed Kramer jumped in to help get people out. "The first unit was under renovation and I yelled for people to get out," he said.
