A huge fire occurred at melody lakes this afternoon during a significant thunderstorm. I heard the sirens and turned my scanner on to hear reports of a fully involved trailer.

I took a drive and it was right behind ashley furniture. I could see flames and the smoke was so dense and blowing across rt. 309

I feel awful for the family that lives there. I hope no one is injured. Thoughts with the homeowners and the firefighters battling it in the torrential rains.

You sit home and listen to the scanner, then go to check out the calls? That's just weird.

I guess you can't read. He didn't say he sits at home listening to the scanner, he said he "heard the sirens and turned my scanner on".

No no no...split the hair THIS way not THAT way DUH.

So do we know if these people are ok? I am guessing that trailers do not fare so well in fires...

Newer mobile homes are much better than years ago. It depends on when it was constructed. The National Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1976 makes them much safer.

The home was heavily involved when the call came in. Manpower shortage in upper Bucks didn't help the situation.

It's called "Buffing" a fire. It's been done since Ben Franklin formed the first volunteer fire company. It's done around the world. Many who "Buff" take pictures that are later used in training. Paid and volunteer alike do it. As long as one parks out of the way and doesn't interfer with the firemen there is nothing wrong with it. If a fire occured in your neighborhood you'd probably run down the street to watch. Plus the firemen love an audience.
