LEITHSVILLE, Pa. — At least one person was killed Thursday afternoon when a dump truck crashed into the Leithsville Volunteer Fire Company in Lower Saucon Township and burst into flames, destroying the building and three firetrucks inside, authorities said.

The dump truck driver escaped the 12:55 p.m. accident with serious burns, but the Northampton County coroner's office said Thursday night that a body had been found in a vehicle inside the gutted firehouse.

Coroner's office officials and Lower Saucon police were on the scene investigating at 9 p.m. Officials did not want to speculate on whether more than one person may have died, or whether the dump truck may have hit a car before it rammed into the building.
