Palmyra Fire

Box 1-02 was sent out for a commercial building fire last evening. Wagon 1 w/5 (Chief Dugan) arrived to find smoke showing from a vacant grain mill, upgrading the box to a working fire and taking the first due Wagon assignment. Tower 1 w/5 (AC Gernert) communicated with the Wagon for best access, coming in a separate way, nosing into the Wagon taking 1st due Truck responsibilities. Engine 1-1 w/7 (LT Robb) arrived to assist the Tower and Wagon crews.

The Tower crew forced the door for the Wagon fire attack group, pushing into the building while continuously flowing water as hi-heat and a large volume of fire was encountered. Once water was applied, a coordinated ventilation effort was done horizontally and vertically by the outside team of Tower 1 on the front side and Truck 58 in the rear.

A great effort was put forth by all crews on scene to bring the fire under control. There was many voids to find fire in and a few collapse areas to work around however overall saving the building.

Thanks to all mutual aid companies on scene and to our standby crews in our station for the second night in a row Linglestown Fire Company #1 - Station 35 and Middletown Volunteer Fire Department.
