Saturday morning, as crews were escorting Santa around the Township, CCDPS dispatched units for a reported house fire in the 20 first due. Chief 20 arrived right after dispatch to find smoke showing from a single family home. Engine 20 arrived and secured their own water supply stretching handlines to the basement to knock down the fire. Members extricated two K9's during a primary search, one unfortunately succumbed to injuries sustained during the fire. Units operated on scene for approximately two hours before returning. Perry Rescue 2 (Duncannon) stood by at Station 1-20 during the incident.
