VIDEOS/PHOTOS: Two firefighters were injured while battling a massive house fire in Salisbury Township, Lehigh County early Tuesday. The firefighters were taken to the hospital with burn and trauma injuries, though their injuries are not life-threatening, according to officials on scene. Multiple other firefighters have been treated at a paramedic staging area on scene as the 3-alarm blaze in the 3000 block of Barrington Lane continues to burn hours later. It was first reported around 5:30 a.m., and flames and smoke billowed from the massive, castle-like structure. Most of the fire was centered in the ballroom portion of the mansion, said officials at the scene. Crews have been attacking the fire from the outside and trying to stop it from spreading to other parts of the home.
