According to the Reading Eagle, an 81 year old man was rescued by neighbors when his house caught fire Friday.

Around 1PM Friday, fire crews were called to 28 Crestview Drive, near the Route 61 and Route 443 intersection, for a house fire.

Prior to firefighters arriving, neighbors rescued the 81 year old homeowner.
