BIRDSBORO, Pa. -- A large forest fire is still burning in the area of a southeastern Pennsylvania state park, prompting nearby homes to be evacuated.
Emergency officials in Berks County say no injuries have been reported in the fire at French Creek State Park, which burned into Tuesday morning.
Dozens of state and local agencies are working to contain the blaze. Officials hope to have the fire under control after daybreak Tuesday.
Residents of five roads near the park have been evacuated. An emergency shelter was set up at a nearby social hall.
Emergency crews spent part of Monday trying to protect a fireworks factory not far from the fire, determining what explosives were inside and preparing a plan of action. Officials said late Monday the factory was no longer in danger.
