Sunday 1-14-18 @ 07:42 company 33 was dispatched to assit on a chicken house fire @ 540 Stricklerstown Rd. Engine 33 went enroute with 4, and Asst. 33 OIC. Engine 33 arrived along with command 34 (Tyler Shanaman). Crews advanced an 1 3/4 and found a small smoldering fire in the ceiling. The owner had kept the fire in check with an extinguisher. Great help with crews that assisted.
Monday 1-15-18 @ 22:14 Engine 33 was alerted for reported barn fire at Shaeffer Rd & Distillery Rd. Chief 35 arrived on location with hay bales near the barn on fire.
1-17-18 at 08:00 box 33-01 was transmitted for a structure fire reported to be a chimney, capt 33 (Randler) went responding immediately and arrived a short time later and advised of a active chimney fire with extension. Engine 33 responded with 3 and arrived on scene securing our own water supply, a single 1.75 attack line was deployed to the garage an members worked to open the walls to expose the fire. Once the extending fire was knocked down the squad company was arriving and they were tasked with getting to the roof to start the extinguishment of the chimney fire. Truck 31 arrived and split crews to assist with roof operations and opening up on the interior, crews were on scene for three hours prior to going available. (photos of chimney fire)
