A woman and three children escaped from a house fire Wednesday in Lansdale.
It broke out shortly after 1:00pm and heavily damaged a home at West Seventh Street and Kenilworth Avenue, next to Mattero Recycling. No one was injured, but one person was taken to a hospital for treatment of anxiety. The cause is under investigation. Owner Joe Mattero says it was the oldest house in Lansdale, and he was renting it to the woman and her three children, who recently came to the area from Italy.
