Mt. Penn Structure Fire

On October 30th just after 9p.m. Mt. Penn was dispatched, along with Lower Alsace, Reading City, Birdsboro, Exeter and Oley fire companies to the 2400 block of Filbert Avenue for a reported structure fire. First arriving Deputy 1-1(Kline) had nothing showing on arrival, but further investigation soon found smoke from the second and third floors and a working fire was declared. All occupants were able to safely evacuate as arriving units found a small fire in the front bedroom with extension to the walls and ceilings. One line was pulled while other crews worked on venting the smoke and heat from the structure as well as the adjoining house. The fire was reported under control by 9:25p.m. but units remained on scene until just before 10:30p.m. performing overhaul to ensure there was no further extension. This fire was determined to be accidental and electrical in origin.
