House explosion in Ewing with multiple burn injuries reported
EWING -- Fire and police agencies are responding to an explosion in a condo complex in Ewing with multiple injuries reported.
The incident at the South Fork at Ewing complex was quickly escalated to two alarms and prompted a response from rescue agencies in multiple surrounding towns and across the Delaware River.
John Sass, who lives on Willis Drive, in a neighborhood of single-family houses adjacent to the townhouse development, said he and his wife were having lunch at home about 12:20 p.m. when they heard the explosion. “We didn’t know if it was an air crash or something,” Sass said.
He closed all the windows, shut off the lights and went outside. “We saw the huge flames and you could see it billowing out,” he said.
Sass ran toward the fire, where he found three families with children who lived in the development and had left their homes. He brought them back to his house to stay warm. By 2 p.m. he said they had all left with family members.
