HANOVER TWP. — A family of five was temporarily displaced from their home because of a fire that started in their clothes dryer this afternoon.

Firefighters responded to what was initially reported as a structure fire at 144 Constitution Ave. at 3:35 p.m.

Deputy Fire Chief Joe Temarantz said firefighters found a fire in the dryer when they arrived and extinguished it within five minutes.

The split-level home sustained smoke and water damage to the first floor and basement, as well as to the laundry room in the basement, Temarantz said.

The family will be able to return after the damage is repaired, he said.
