PALMER TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Three Palmer Township firefighters injured while assisting at a fire in Lower Nazareth Township on Sunday were treated at a hospital and released, officials said.

Two of the firefighters fell from the second floor to the first when a floor collapsed, while the third suffered a laceration to the leg.

“We are happy to report that after being transported to the hospital, all three firefighters were released after being treated for their injuries,” the Palmer Fire Department said in a Facebook post. “In the fire service, we are all family, and we made sure our brothers were not alone while being treated.”

The department was called to the blaze on the 300 block of Hemlock Lane shortly after 9 p.m. when it went to two alarms. Firefighters were on scene until after midnight.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
