Fire police closed Gower Road, which runs into Upper Nazareth Township, and a section of W. High Street.

Brian Andres and Mary Allocco purchased the $325,000 home less than a month ago, according to Northampton County property records.

The Bushkill Township Volunteer Fire Company was assisted by Vigilance Hose Co. No. 1 and the Upper Nazareth Fire Department. Because those departments were tied up, Plainfield Township fire crews were placed on stand-by to cover any additional incidents.
