A sus­pi­cious single-alarm fire caused heavy dam­age Sunday night to the headquar­ters of Broad Street Me­dia, the pub­lish­er of the North­east Times, Star and Wire news­pa­pers.

Fire­fight­ers rushed to the com­pany’s of­fice and ware­house at 2512 Met­ro­pol­it­an Drive in Tre­vose at about 10:30 p.m. after mo­tor­ists on the nearby Pennsylvania Turn­pike saw flames rising above the build­ing and called 911, said Bat­talion Chief Robert Spon­heimer of the Ben­s­alem Town­ship Fire De­part­ment.

The first ar­riv­ing units saw a rub­bish fire out­side the rear of the prop­erty that had spread to the roof of the single-story ma­sonry struc­ture.

Fire­fight­ers cut open a por­tion of the roof to battle the blaze, which they rought un­der con­trol at about 11 p.m., Spon­heimer said. The the news and pro­duc­tion de­part­ments suffered wa­ter dam­age as the uild­ing’s in­tern­al sprink­ler sys­tem ac­tiv­ated.

In­vest­ig­at­ors also re­por­ted smoke dam­age to the BSM of­fice, as well as an ad­join­ing com­mer­cial prop­erty at 2516 Met­ro­pol­it­an Drive, that Spon­heimer de­scribed as va­cant.      

The cause of the fire re­mains un­der in­vest­ig­a­tion by the Ben­s­alem fire mar­shal’s of­fice and po­lice. Au­thor­it­ies have named no sus­pects.

The flames seemed to be con­cen­trated near a rear en­trance and load­ing ay and left thou­sands of charred news­pa­pers strewn out­side the ark­ing lot. The blaze en­gulfed two ground-level air con­di­tion­ing units and caused large sec­tions of as­phalt to buckle.

Four en­gine com­pan­ies and two lad­der com­pan­ies from the Tre­vose, Not­ting­ham, Lower Southamp­ton town­ship and Feasterville fire de­part­ments re­spon­ded to the blaze. ••
