A Hellertown woman is charged with a first degree misdemeanor count of making terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another person after police say she allegedly threatened to burn a house down in the 100 block of Cedar Road Wednesday.
Local volunteer firefighters were on the scene early Wednesday of a house fire that broke out around midnight at 314 Cedar Road in Hellertown borough. At about 12:20 a.m., the Lehigh Valley Breaking News Facebook page reported that smoke and fire were showing at the scene. As of 1 a.m. information was not yet available about what may have caused the blaze, and whether or not anyone was injured as a result of it. A neighborhood resident reported that the fire was under control by that time. The house in which the blaze occurred has been unoccupied for some time, the resident said.
