Mt. Penn Fire Company

Amity Structure Fire

On April 26 around 8:30p.m. the ladder was dispatched along with several other companies to assist Amity(Co’s 49 & 6) with a reported structure fire in the 100 block of Maplewood Dr.  Arriving units had heavy fire showing from the second floor front and quickly placed 2 lines in service.  Other units vented the roof and secured utilities and also performed a secondary search.  Fortunately all occupants were able to get out safely.  The bulk of the fire was knocked down within 10 minutes but extensive overhaul was needed to ensure there were no hot spots remaining.  Units were able to begin clearing within an hour and Mt. Penn units were back at station by 10:00p.m.  The fire remains under investigation
