Working Fire Dumps The Station
Wed, Nov 9th, 2016 12:25:00 pm - Around 12:25, The first alarm was struck for the 5-14 box (Co.17 first due) for the reported house fire. Chief 5 went en route right away and was advised of multiple calls advising of a working fire. Chief 5A arrived first to report smoke from the attic and eaves of of the end unit of a row of townhouses. Engine 1-20 arrived assuming the first due engine company assignment and stretched a line to the second floor to start working a well advanced attic fire while the operater secured his own water source. Engine 2-20 arrived laying a secondary supply line to Truck 1-17 and Tanker 20 laid a third supply line to Truck 30. Crews worked the interior until a partial collapse and fire through the roof caused an evactuation until the Truck companies could suppress the fire enough for the crews to re enter the structure to finish extinguishing the fire. The rescue and utility 1 also assisted on the scene with manpower. Photo credits to Ashley Mixell, Tim Lantz and Cumberland County Fire Wire. A special thank you to Duncannon and Silver Spring Fire Companies for covering our station while we were committed and helping clean up and get the rigs back in service.
