Mt. Penn Fire Company

RIT x 2


Just before 4:30p.m. on April 13 Mt. Penn was special called as the second RIT company for a structure fire at 492 S Wyomissing Ave. in Cumru Twp.  First arriving units had found a working structure fire involving the rear of 492 and 494 which became worse due to the dry conditions and steady wind.  Eventually this fire would go to 4 alarms bringing companies from many locations including standby companies from Lancaster County.  Mt. Penn crews were released just before 7p.m.  This fire is under investigation.

Just before 1:30a.m. we were again dispatched as the RIT company on the second alarm for 313 N. Wyomissing Ave. in Shillington for a fire involving the rear of 311 & 313 N. Wyomissing Ave.  First arriving crews found that and a resident trapped on the second floor.  They were quickly removed and flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital for treatment where they remain in critical condition.  The fire was placed under control within an hour and Mt. Penn was able to clear just after 2:30a.m.  This fire remains under investigation.
