Mt. Penn Fire Company

Vehicle vs House

  On July 10 shortly before 11p.m. Mt. Penn was dispatched to assist Lower Alsace (Co4) at 2 Heidelberg Ave. for a reported vehicle into a house with possible entrapment.  Arriving units found that there was no entrapment but the vehicle had struck the house causing serious damage to a wall. Exactly how it happened remains under investigation by Central Berks Police. Fire crews made a complete search of the house and vehicle to ensure it was clear and also secured all utilities while evaluating the amount of structural damage.  All units stood by until the tow company was able to remove the vehicle and units were able to return shortly after midnight.
