Huge forest fire consumes over 150 acres on the Blue Mountain

Over 175 firefighters are battling this forest fire that started Saturday afternoon after 2:30 PM near West Sunset Road in East Penn Township. The fire burned all day Saturday into Sunday.

In Lehigh County, a voluntary evacuation was issued and a shelter was set-up at a local fire house in Washington Township late Saturday night.

Crews worked the Lehigh - Carbon County line on top of the mountain to stop the fire from coming over the mountain. Firefighters will work through Sunday to contain the blaze.

The photos were taken late Saturday night around 11:45 PM.
