Building Fire
June 30, 2019

This afternoon Swatara Fire & Rescue and mutual aid units were dispatched for a reported building fire. The police department advised of a working fire which prompted Chief 91-1 to request the working fire dispatch. Crews arrived less then 4 minutes from dispatch to find fire extending up the outside of the building. Three attack lines were deployed to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors along with the charlie side exterior. The crews of Engine and Air 91-2 assisted with securing the secondary water supply and deploying the 2nd and 3rd attack lines. Personnel acted quickly and contained most of the fire to the exterior with minor extension to the interior. The investigation to the cause is still ongoing.
