Woman Killed in Jenkintown Home Fire; Hard Rock Atlantic City Signs Workers; PA Dirt Bike/ATV Law

A woman was killed and two firefighters were injured in a 2-alarm blaze in Montgomery County on Friday evening, 7/1. It happened just before 8 p.m. on the 200 block of Summit Avenue in Jenkintown. Firefighters arrived to heavy flames on the first and second floors of the three-story twin home. Homeowner 69-year-old Susanne Whitehead was found unconscious on the second floor. She was taken to Einstein Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. One firefighter was taken to the hospital with a possible heart attack. Another was treated for heat exhaustion. Other firefighters had minor injuries and heat related issues. No one else was in the home. Those in the other half of the twin house were able to escape. The Jenkintown Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire. Susanne Whitehead was well known in the community and active at nearby Immaculate Conception Church.

The Hard Rock casino in Atlantic City reached an agreement on Saturday, 7/2, with the casino workers union ahead of a July 3 deadline. The agreement between Local 54 of the Unite Here union and Hard Rock prevents a strike during the busy holiday weekend. Local 54 also reached agreements with Borgata, Caesars, Harrah's and the Tropicana on Thursday, 6/30. The smaller casinos, Resorts and the Golden Nugget, will hopefully be signed at a later date. Full union membership will have to ratify the new agreement.

Currently, PA state law only calls for a summary offense and a fine when someone is caught riding a dirt bike, quad, or other all-terrain vehicle on the streets or sidewalk. The Pennsylvania House overwhelmingly voted on a new law that would give Pennsylvania cities the ability to impound the vehicles. If the person is then convicted of the summary offense, then that vehicle would be seized permanently. The city would either resell it or scrap it. The bill gets sent back to the Senate where it was originally passed with only 1 'no' vote. This law covers PA's class 1, 2, and 3 cities and towns.
