Update (11:08 p.m.):

The fire continues to burn in the B building of Racquet Club as many fire departments from across Bucks County work tirelessly to get the fire under control.

Original Story:

Around 9 p.m., Middletown Township police officers were responding to a traffic stop when they were called to the scene of a fire reported at the Racquet Club apartment complex. Police were said to have arrived at the raging fire, which impacted the B building before the fire department arrived.The Middletown Township Police Sergeant stated that the fire department responded to a three alarm fire for the B building of Racquet Club. Although it is too early to determine the cause of the fire, the sergeant stated the upper two level apartments had been evacuated prior to their arrival, other residents close by were evacuated shortly after. No residents or otherwise are believed to be in the building at this time.

The fire showed no letting up as it continues to rip through the remainder of the B building. Local firefighters were seen tearing down the gate surrounding the community pool and draining the water, water which will be used to continue to fight the fire.

Editors Tom Sofield and Jeff Bohen are currently at the scene. Levittown Now will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
