Fire crews responded to a heavy smoke-filled apartment fire in Hanover Township Wednesday afternoon. The fire broke out on South Main Street in Hanover Township around 3:30 p.m. on the second floor of a five-unit apartment building. Smoke filled the windows of the apartment building as crews fought to put out the flames. Residents say as all 22 occupants made it out of the building. However, officials have yet to say if anyone was injured. “I need to know where I’m going to be, whether I am going to be homeless or have a place to live because it’s hard to get an apartment nowadays,” said Greg Winslow, Hanover Township. The American Red Cross is on scene helping those displaced by the fire.
