House fire in Hanover Twp.


Officials in Lehigh County are looking into the cause of a house fire.

The fire broke out around 11:15 p.m. Monday in the 2000 block of Dauphin Drive in Hanover Township, communications officials confirm.

When officials arrived on the scene, they saw heavy smoke and fire coming from the home.


The state police fire marshall said the cause is still under investigation, but it's unlikely a cause will be found as the house was destroyed.

No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross provided the family of two adults and one child with lodging, clothing and food.

The Mosser Nursing Home at 1175 Mosser Road in Trexlertown, Lehigh Co., is accepting donations for the family, one of whom works at Mosser.

The family needs:

Men's shirts: 2XL

Men's pants/short: 40"

Boys: sizes 10-12 and 12-24 mos.

Ladies' tops: XL

Ladies' pants/shorts: 2XL

All donations may be dropped off at Mosser Nursing Home.
