Video above by Newsworking’s Bill Rohrer from a fire early this morning at Youell’s Oyster House in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Here’s some of what Bill wrote about the fire:

The fire escalated to 3 alarms. The fire consumed the entire structure. At 6:46 AM, a mayday went out when a wall collapsed on three firefighters.
Below is some of the radio traffic from Dan Clerico at NortheastBravest.com. You hear the mayday at the end of this video. There is more video at the bottom of this post from Jayson Wagner.
