MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Crews responded to an early morning fire in the Poconos Sunday.
Fire broke out at an abandoned Birchwood Resort property on Birchwood Road around 4 a.m. Sunday. Approximately five fire companies responded to the fully involved structure fire.
“Coincidentally, this is where they caught Eric Frein back in 2014, in the old airplane hangar. We had a fire here two weeks ago in one of their cottages, and then this morning,” Pocono Township Emergency Management Coordinator Jerrod Delvin said.
Two aerials and two ponds were used to extinguish the fire. A pool, sports complex and shooting range were damaged.
The cause of the fire is being investigated. Officials do not know if any of the fires are related.
