At Least 20 Injured in Nursing Home Fire in Chester County

The blaze raged for more than 2 ½ hours before being declared under control at 1:22 a.m. Friday.

At least 20 people were injured in a massive fire that engulfed a senior living community in Pennsylvania. It quickly spread to multiple buildings in the complex. They did not say how many were not accounted for.

Numerous residents were pushed in wheelchairs or rolled on beds to safety, said Dina Ciccarone, another neighbour who helped move people away from the fire and into safety. "Some were lying on the ground, we were just bundling them up". They could be seen lined up on the street outside, wrapped in blankets.

There was no immediate word on any injuries but Philadelphia ABC station, WPVI, reported that all area hospitals have been told to expect patients.

Three ambulances from Lancaster County responded to the scene.
