Retirement Home Fire

Posted: Updated:

A fire at a retirement home sends one person to the hospital with burns.

Flames broke out on the third floor of the Willow Lake Retirement Center in Willow Grove, PA around 5:40 this afternoon. The sprinkler system contained the fire to one room, but water damage forced the home to move residents to a sister facility.

One person was airlifted to Temple's burn center. Police are not releasing the resident's identity or condition.

Officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
