House fire on 500 block of Locust Street reportedly caused by unattended cooking; 3 firefighters hurt

Several fire departments and other emergency personnel responded to a house fire at 521 Locust Street at about 3:30 p.m. today. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire that also threatened an adjoining house and another neighboring house at 523 Locust. The fire was believed to have been caused by unattended cooking. WGAL reports that three firefighters were hurt: two from electrical shocks and one from heat exhaustion.

WGAL's Becca Hendrickson reports on the house fire on the 500 block of Locust Street. 

The first two photos (and the second from last) were taken from the rear of the house:
