Just after midnight and most of our members just got home from cleaning up from Jubilee Day, CC911 dropped the tones for a reported garage fire in the 400-blk of South York Street. Chief 8 (Seagrist) was advised of multiple calls and arrived with a working 2 story garage with fire showing. Engine 128 (with 7) arrived right behind Engine 127 (Citizens) and supplied the 5 inch supply line. The crew from Engine 128 pulled 2 handlines off Engine 127 and knocked majority of the fire down with the assistance of Company 27 personnel. Crews initially did an exterior attack due to the condition of the garage and for the amount of items being stored throughout. Truck 28 (with 2) and Rescue 28 (with 2) arrived and assisted with opening up the garage. Company 37 and WSEMS also assisted. Company 28 was on scene for about 2.5 hours with a total manpower of 19. The PSP Fire Marshal is investigating.
A special thank you to Engine 230 (Hampden Township) for transferring while we were committed.
Also, a special thank you to Eric Staub of Staub’s Photography for the photographs. We appreciate the work you are doing!
