Flag rescued from Pottstown

POTTSTOWN, Pa. -

A piece of America was rescued this Memorial Day Weekend in Montgomery County.

A large American flag was blown by the heavy winds and got stuck in some power lines outside the Burger King on Route 663 in Upper Pottsgrove Township.

Firefighters were called in to get the flag down.  Eventually, they were able to get it untangled.

The flag was returned to the Burger King manager.
