Thursday marks one year since the massive warehouse fire in West Easton. We'd be hard pressed to find someone in the Easton area who doesn't remember this day last year. You either were far enough away to just see the smoke, or you were close enough where you could smell it. Some had soot and ash falling on your cars and homes. The warehouse on Lehigh Drive went up in flames, knocking out power to roughly 7,000 people and requiring the help of agencies from all across our region. "The house shook, the windows shook," nearby resident Diane Smereczynsky told our 69 News crew covering the fire last year. "Within minutes, we heard the sirens and all the companies coming down the street."
