Rebuilding process starts at historic Boyertown building

BOYERTOWN, Pa. -

The Boyertown Inn is already undergoing repairs after fire damaged the top floor of the building Thursday night. The fire broke out around 10:45.

30 people call the Inn home. About seven of them have been displaced. The owner said the first thing that went through his mind when he heard about the fire were his tenants.

"First of all, concerned that there's nobody at risk of being hurt and injured," said Richard Houck. "Then I worried about the building."

It took crews about an hour and a half to control the fire. Still no word on how it started.
