Crews Tackle Mill St. Fire

8.8.2015 - As members were working the department's softball tournament at the Little League complex, word came in of a house fire nearby. Almost at the same time, 911 began dispatching the first alarm companies for a working house fire on Mill St in the Borough.

Rescue 112 marked on scene less than 2 minutes from dispatch, confirming the working fire with smoke showing from the rear of the home. Engine 112 arrived next, grabbing the plug across the street from the residence. As the interior attack got underway, crews found that the hydrant was non operable, forcing the attack team to back out briefly.

Engine 126 (Germania) established secondary water supply from Mill & Commerce Sts, allowing companies to get back at it. In all, the fire was controlled within 20 minutes, with the home suffering extensive damage to the first floor and smoke/water damage throughout.

Great job by all the responding companies
