Fire breaks out at vacant Allentown warehouse; Firefighter injured

Firefighters in Allentown worked through the night as they battled a fire at a vacant warehouse.

Flames broke out at a vacant warehouse on the 400 block of North Franklin Street around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Almost 12 hours later, fire crews were continuing to put water on the four-story building Monday morning.

Officials say the fire broke out on the lower floors, but quickly spread to the upper floors, and eventually through the roof. The fire's climb has caused concerns about a potential collapse.
