Mt. Penn Fire Company

Oley Structure Fire

On April 3rd about 1:30p.m. Mt. Penn was dispatched with several other companies to assist Oley(Co 5) on a reported structure fire in the 200 block of Mud Run Rd.  First arriving units had a house back a long lane with fire showing up the front of the house.  Supply line was laid up the lane from Mud Run Rd and a second alarm for additional tankers was called for by command.  The visible fire was quickly knocked down but additional lines were stretched to the second and third floors where the fire had extended up and into the front of the building by way of wooden framing and overhangs.  It was placed under control within 30 minutes although units remained on scene for some time performing overhaul.  The exact cause of this fire is under investigation.
