Crews spent about twenty minutes getting the fire under control and remained on scene for about two and a half hours with a state police fire marshal.

Pennsylvania State Police say Michael Santillo, 41, from Pattengurg, NY was inside a food tent cooking at the time. Due to a faulty propane tank or a faulty connection, flames vented into the tent, severely burning Santillo.

He was flown transported to the Lehigh Valley Burn Center to be treated.
