At 16:48 pm we were alerted for Fire Box 19W, a garage fire with a residential exposure close by.
Chief 19 arrived on scene and advised a working fire. Mutual aid was received from Stations 2, 3, 10 and Clarion 540. Engine Rescue 2 laid approx 500 feet of 5″ up a narrow driveway and pulled a handline to begin the initial attack. Engine Rescue 3 arrived and set up supply to ER2. Additional manpower from all the volunteer fire departments had their personnel on scene doing various tasks to put out the fire and ensure the residence wasn’t involved. The fire was under control within 40 minutes and there was an extensive mop up to put out the hot spots.
We would like to say Thank You to Brookville Station 2, Corsica Station 3, Pinecreek Station 10, Farmington Township Station 540, JCEMS and Jefferson County 911 for there assistance.
