Voorheesville Structure Fire Hospitalizes Firefighter

Voorheesville Fire

A firefighter was injured and is hospitalized after battling a large structure fire on Delaware Turnpike in Voorheesville early Tuesday morning.

The fire was called in by a neighbor who said it was so large they could see it through the woods, requiring crews to drag hundreds feet of hose, since the trucks couldn't make it in, the roads were also muddy and crews were forced to get over a creek, still running high from recent rainfall.

A lack of fire hydrants forced firefighters to draw water from the creek as well.
