3-Alarm Fire Destroys Popular Allentown Restaurant

Posted: Updated:
ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Firefighters battled a three-alarm fire and cold temperatures at a popular restaurant in Allentown Tuesday morning.

SkyFOX was live over the scene of fire at Youell's Oyster House on the 2200 block of West Walnut Street during the height of the fire.

The fire was placed under control around 7:15 a.m,  but flames were still visible after 8 a.m.  Smoke billowed into the blustery morning air as part of the popular eatery's roof collapsed.

A total of five firefighters were injured.  Three suffered minor injuries and two were injured when part of a wall collapsed.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley filed several reports from the scene.  He also spoke to the owner of the restaurant,  who is determined to rebuild his beloved restaurant.   

Authorities tell Fox 29 there will be an exhaustive investigation into the cause of the blaze.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
