Storms Keep Crews Busy

7.8.2014 - As severe weather slammed the area Tuesday evening, the tones started dropping almost immediately.

The first response was for an activated fire alarm on Clarks Rd in Duryea. The Rescue & Chief responded, while the Engine remained staffed in quarters. As crews cleared that response, a residential structure fire was dispatched for the 100 block of Main St, Avoca. 911 was reporting a house hit by lighting. The Rescue was first arriving, finding no smoke showing from the residence. As crews investigated, they found a large tree fell onto the rear of the home, damaging both the roof and rear wall. Crews spent more than an hour clearing the tree and getting a tarp placed over the damaged roof to prevent further water damage for the homeowner.

As crews went available from the Main St incident, 911 advised of a large tree down on a vehicle at the corner of Spring & Hawthorns Sts. Crews were advised that the tree was also blocking the roadway. Once on scene, crews began cutting up the tree before using the winch on Rescue 112 to pull the tree off the vehicle and then remove it from the roadway. Crews worked for approximately 45 minutes before clearning this incident.

As members returned to the station and began servicing saws and cleaning equipment, the tones would drop again, sending the Rescue, Engine & Chief to York Ave to assist Avoca PD and EMS in searching for a female lost in the woods behind Litzy's bar. Crews setup lighting and searched the area before locating the female who was turned over to EMS and PD for further evaluation.

Firebug Burns House Twice in 2 Hours

7.6.2014 - Shortly after clearing a run in Old Forge, the AFD was sent out to assist West Pittston with a reported structure fire on Foundry St. As crews were responding, 911 provided additional info that the fire on the porch might be out, but a heavy smoke condition within the building existed. West Pittston crews arrived to find a fire burning in a front room and at the top of a stairwell. 112 units assisted with opening walls, ventilation and water supply while Chief 112 handled accountability.

About an hour after clearing the scene, untis were again dispatched back to the same address by request of P.D. for a well involved fire. This time, crews arrived to find fire showing from all windows and threatening the "D" side exposure. Engine 112 laid out 900' of supply line as secondary water source while the Rescue crew assisted in stretching lines and assisting in suppression efforts. Due to the volume of fire and the exposure problem, Chief Hood quickly called for a second alarm assignment.

112 crews operated for more than three hours before returning to service. The Chief, Engine, Rescue and Fire Police all responded to both incidents. The fires would be declared arson by West Pittston fire and police.

Rescue Assists Taylor FD

2.16.2014 - Rescue Co 112 went at it again at another frigid weekend early morning fire. The Rescue Co was sent to assist Taylor Fire Dept on a working structure fire on Pond St. around 445 AM.

Taylor fire dept faced a heavy fire load when first arriving. Upon our arrival, the Rescue split into 2 groups as they came with 11 members total. The first group assisted Old Forge (93) with pulling ceilings to check for fire extension. Shortly after coming out of the building for a breather, the second 112 crew went in along with a crew from Scranton (50) and finished up the overhaul and gave the 2nd floor one last soaking with the handline. In addition to duties doing overhaul, the 112 crews would also check the D side exposure for extension and setup a pump to help wtih the water build up in the home's basement.

Sadly, the fire claimed the life of one occupant and injured three others. We extend our deepest condolences to the Taylor FD as well as the family of the victims.

West Pittston Chimney Fire

1.8.2014 - The Rescue responded with West Pittston FD to a Luzerne Ave home Wednesday evening for a working chimney fire. Crews arrived to find fire burning within the chimney's flue. A search of all divisions and attic proved negative for extension.

Crews utilized chimney flares and dry chemical extinguishers to handle much of the fire. Crews then headed to the roof via the 184 Ladder to drop chains, which allowed much of the remaining burning debris to fall where interior crews could extinguish and remove. Crews operated for more than 2 hours to fully extinguish the fire before returning to service.
