Flames reaching a power line caused a firefighter in Reading, Pennsylvania on Thursday evening to make a sudden entrance into an open window and off the roof. The firefighter was uninjured.
Things got extremely tense as the fire hit live wires moments after the fire broke out in a vacant home on Schuylkill Avenue, near North Front Street, in Reading.
One firefighter had to jump from a roof through a second floor window of the home to avoid the sparks. Crews then scrambled to turn off the power.
