Monday, June 26, 2017 At 18:21 the 15 House was dispatched to the news stand on Broadway for a working building fire called in by Milton PD. Chief 1502 and 1561 arrived to find smoke showing throughout the building. Chief 1503 arrived and established command. Engine 15-2 arrived and laid a supply line from Filbert Street and pulled a 2” line for fire attack. Truck 2-1 arrived just after the Engine and prepared to ventilate as the engine crew stretched in. Chief 1502 along with the engine crew made entry through the D side and found zero visibility and high heat conditions. Truck 15-1 arrived and set up on the C side. Once the bulk of the fire on the first floor was knocked crews went to the second division and found the same conditions. Mutual aid from White Deer, Warrior Run, Pottsgrove, and Turbot Township assisted with relieving the attack crew, ventilation, and extensive overhaul. Montgomery Rescue 13 was also on the scene for RIT. Northumberland’s Truck and Rescue assisted on the scene and later returned to Station 15 and assisted with cleanup. Point Township also stood by in during the fire. Company 15 was available at 21:37.
