Mt. Penn Fire Company

Assist to Alsace on structure fire

On April 18 just after 11a.m. Mt. Penn was dispatched as the RIT company on the second alarm to assist Alsace Manor (C08) at 118 Beacon Hill Rd.  The initial alarm was dispatched only minutes earlier with Berks Communications reporting multiple calls as well as PSP helicopter Trooper 1 in the area reporting a working fire.  First arriving crews had a working fire in an attached garage with extension into the kitchen and first floor area.  A tanker shuttle was set up to ensure a constant water supply as the area has no hydrants and several lines we in use to contain the fire.  The Mt. Penn crew stood by as RIT for a short time until being released by command and then went to work assisting with final extinguishment and overhaul.  They were able to return shortly after 1p.m.  The exact cause remains under investigation by the Fire Marshal.
