Cause of Fatal Schwenksville Fire; Cow Escapes Philly Nativity Scene Twice
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Authorities have identified the cause of a fire in Montgomery County that claimed the lives of two young boys. The Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshal has ruled the fire accidental. They say that the cause of the fire was an electrical failure in an extension cord plugged into a space heater on the porch of the home. The fire started around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning on the 900 block of Summit Avenue in Schwenksville, Pa. Montgomery County sheriff's deputy Bryan Lukens, his wife Tracy, and 9-year-old daughter Soffia all escaped with injures. 11-year-old Bryan Jr. and 6-year-old Parker were found dead in their upstairs bedroom. A gofundmepage has been setup to help the Lukens family.

A Philadelphia cow escaped from a live nativity scene in Old City twice this morning. The bovine named 'Stormy' first ran off around 2:15 a.m. from the Old First Reformed United Church of Christ at 4th and Race Streets. She managed to make her way onto I-95 near Callowhill Street. Several lanes had to be shut down. One of the Pennsylvania State Troopers responding owns a horse/cattle ranch in South Jersey and knew just how to corral the 7-year-old Hereford cow. Stormy was brought back to the stable. At around 6:30 a.m., she broke free from the nativity scene for a second time. She made her way to the top of a nearby parking garage. Stormy won't get another chance on the lam; she has been returned to Manatawna Farm in Roxborough. A smaller cow named Ginger has taken her place. Reverend Michael Caine says it looks like the enclosure had been tampered with.
