Firefighters battled a fire that went to five alarms today at a motel in Muhlenberg, Pennsylvania.
Firefighters arriving at the scene of the fire encountered heavy smoke and flames billowing from the building, and their were reports of a partial wall collapse, according to the local CBS affiliate (http://cbsloc.al/1lGaLRc).
Strong winds hampered firefighting efforts as the fire also spread to a neighboring metal-supply business, according to WFMZ (http://bit.ly/QFx53E).
