dispatch to find a house with heavy fire from the rear and
heavy smoke pouring out the windows and asked for 2nd alarm.
Command ask E12-1 to access the rear and deploy handlines to
control the fire while Tanker 12 supplied the Engine.
Members had there work cut out for them with heavy fire on
arrival. With multiple handlines deployed we worked
hard to control the fire. We had fire blowing out the
basement door, 1st floor, 2nd floor, & 3rd floor windows.
Additional crews arrived to help with the fight. As
the rear of the structure became unstable crews then moved
into a defensive position. The rear portion of the
house then collapsed making access to the house harder.
Crews worked very hard to keep the fire from extending into
the houses on each side of the fire building. There
was a fire wall between one of the houses which did the job
it was made to do. Command 4 asked for a 3rd alarm to
bring in additional crews to assist. Crews worked for
hours in the overhaul and containment mode. Companies
from Perry, Cumberland & Juniata County joined the fight.
We would like to thank Hampden & Silver Spring Fire
Companies for covering area station during this incident.
