TOBYHANNA TWP., Pa. -

One man was rescued from a mobile home fire Monday night in Tobyhanna Township, Monroe County.

According to crews on scene, a helicopter was called to the scene to transport the rescued man to the hospital, but due to the stormy weather, the helicopter could not fly, so the man was instead driven by ambulance to Geisinger Hospital in Wilkes-Barre.

The fire, located at Campstead Circle and Fern Crest Road off of Route 115, started at around 7:30 p.m.

Crews cleared the scene around 10:20 p.m.
