New Ringgold Structure Fire
New Ringgold, PA

January 2, 2001

Shortly after 10 p.m. on January 2, 2001, a fast-moving fire broke out at 49 Ridge Road, a wooded area off Route 895 in East Brunswick Township, Schuylkill County, east of the borough of New Ringgold. Firefighters from New Ringgold were met with flames and smoke coming from the home. They found a man in his 20's who had died in the fire. The blaze was extinguished within an hour but firefighters remained on scene for several hours. All that remained of the house was its shell - with one half of the roof and western wall burned away. Assisting New Ringgold firefighters were volunteers from West Penn Township, Walker Township, Orwigsburg, Deer Lake/West Brunswick Township and tanker trucks from surrounding communities. The Penn Mahoning Ambulance responded along with paramedics from the Tamaqua Community Ambulance Medic 65.
