An early morning fire displaced five people Wednesday in New Holland Borough.
No injuries were reported and all five people were out of the building when fire crews arrived, according to Garden Spot Fire Rescue chief Darryl Keiser.
Keiser said there were three apartments in the building.
The fire started shortly after 7 a.m. in the back apartment of 305 East Main Street, Keiser said.
The fire spread to the neighboring business at 309, damaging the side of the building.
Nearly 75 firefighters from eight fire companies helped stop the blaze, Keiser said.
Firefighters contained the blaze in under an hour, and Keiser estimated damages at nearly $275,000.
The Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshal was investigating, Keiser said.
The chief tipped his hat to local businesses who let his volunteer firefighters leave work to help fight the fire.
