Fire Destroys Former Motel near Cressona

A fire Friday afternoon destroyed a former motel near Cressona.

At 4:00pm on Friday, fire crews were dispatched to a working fire at 1476 Route 61, the former Days Inn along Route 61 north of Cressona in North Manheim Township.

As the first crews arrived, they found heavy flames coming from the roof and it was quickly classified as fully involved.

The fire quickly spread through the entire structure causing multiple collapses.  Crews fought the fire defensively with multiple aerial units fighting the fire from above.

The building was left vacant after the motel closed a few years ago.

Around 5:45pm, the fire was marked under control.

We'll have more information on this fire when it is available.
