Easton, Pa-- Working house fire at 1074 W. Wilkes-Barre Street.

On arrival the first due engine had heavy fire blowing out of the 2nd floor of a 2.5-story duplex.
Attack lines went to work on the 2nd floor with heavy fire extending into the attic. Two minutes into the video a Easton Firefighter fell off the main roof onto onto a 2nd roof after missing the ladder rungs. The firefighter appeared to be uninjured and continued to work. Firefighters were eventually forced to evacuate the building due to conditions quickly deteriorating a loss of water pressure and dead hydrants. Companies used all hands with multiple large lines, ladder pipes and ground monitors.
