Mt. Penn Fire Company

Rainy night Exeter Structure

On April 28th just after 9p.m. Ladder 1 was dispatched, along with several other companies, to assist Exeter Township(Co25) on a reported structure fire in the 100 block of E. Baumstown Rd. County advised that the smoke detectors were going off and the resident heard a “crackling noise.” First arriving units reported smoke from the roof and called a working fire. As the rest of the assignment arrived the initial attack crew reported heavy fire in the second-floor area. Other crews went to work stretching additional lines, performing ventilation & securing a water supply. 2 additional tankers were called for water supply as this area has few hydrants, none of them close to the scene. At one point command had the home evacuated due to fire conditions & structural concerns. Upon re-entry there was still plenty of fire present, especially in void spaces. The fire was placed under control shortly after 10:30p.m. with units beginning to clear just before midnight. The cause of this fire is under investigation.
