Limerick, Trappe Respond to Smoke-Filled Cellar

LIMERICK PA – A smoke-filled basement that triggered a residential fire alarm brought volunteers from the Limerick Fire Department and Trappe Fire Company No. 1 out Tuesday (May 19, 2020) at about 2:50 p.m. to a home on Bayberry Drive near Wisteria Drive in the township.

No injuries or significant structural damage were reported.

Limerick Deputy Chief Glen Russell said the smoke came from a power inverter connected to the home’s solar panels. The alarm alerted an occupant in the home at the time, who called for emergency assistance.

The solar power provider had been contacted, and was due to arrive to fix the electrical problem, Russell added.
