MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) – Mounds of smoke filled the air as fire crews battled a three-alarm fire at a popular ski shop in Eagleville. The blaze broke out at Salter’s Ski Shop on the 3100 block of Ridge Pike around 8:45 a.m. Saturday.
Because of the type of structure and the metal roof, fire crews were forced to pull back for fear of a potential collapse, official say.
Officials say, at one point, fire command called mayday for a firefighter but the firefighter was located and the call was canceled.
There are no reports of any injuries.
The fire was placed under control around 2 p.m.
