Muhlenberg Township police and firefighters are recovering from a busy Independence Day. "We had 32 calls in a couple hours span about fireworks complaints," said Sgt. Joel Marino, Muhlenberg Township Police Department. One call kept officers particularly busy. "We got a call for a car fire over in the 3100 block of Eisenbrown Road," said Marino. "Our officers got there and found a car that was fully engulfed in flames." Police said fireworks are to blame for the flames that engulfed a minivan. "The tube fell over and actually shot some of the fireworks under the car and in the open window of the van," Marino said. A neighbor witnessed the response.
