Mt. Penn Fire Company

Tuesday is Variety Day-Part II

Similar to last Tuesday, January 30 was another eventful day at Mt. Penn.

Just after 8a.m the rescue was dispatched to assist Alsace Manor (Co8) at Antietam and Basket Rds for a vehicle crash with injuries.  Arriving crews found 2 vehicles with the drivers having minor injuries.  Crews powered down the vehicles and applied oil dry to spilled fluids.  They were able to clear the scene by 8:30am.

While members were busy assisting on the crash, they were dispatched as the RIT company to assist Gibralter (Co23) for a reported structure fire in the area of Morgantown Rd. & Seton Rd.  Another company was sent in place of Mt. Penn to handle the assignment.  All units were quickly recalled as it was found to be a controlled burn to the rear of Green Hills Lumber.

Just after 1:30p.m. Mt. Penn, along with Lower Alsace (Co4), Exeter (Co25), Reading City, Birdsboro (Co7) and Oley (Co5) were sent to 2248 Woodvale Ave. for a reported structure fire.  Police arrived first and reported smoke from the rear of the structure.  Arriving fire crews found a fire on an enclosed rear porch and were able to quickly contain it with one line while other personnel ventilated the smoke from the rest of the house.  Quick action by everybody kept this accidental fire contained to the rear porch and damage minimal.  Units were able to clear just after 2p.m.
