The state police fire marshal is investigating after a fire at the Western Berks Ambulance Station in Spring Township. It broke out around 7 p.m. Thursday at the station at 2500 Belmont Avenue. The fire is believed to have started inside the engine compartment of one of the three ambulances parked inside the station, according to the Western Berks Ambulance Association. "Very fortunate we do not have any injuries," said Michael Leifer, president of the Western Berks Ambulance Association. "We do have one person being checked out at the hospital with possible smoke inhalation due to an asthma issue that she has." Wyomissing Fire, Spring Township Police and multiple other crews responded after a second alarm was struck.
