|Basement Fire Box 40-01|
|January 30, 2019|
This evening, as crews were staffing, Box 40-01 (Paxtang) was sent to the 3200 Block of Derry Street for a possible basement fire. Captain 32 arrived with smoke showing from Side A. Engine 91 arrived as the 3rd Due Engine Company, laying line to Side C and stretching. The crew from Tower 32, Engine 40 & Engine 91 confirmed a fire in the basement between the floors. Crews extinguished the fire and completed overhaul.
It is worth noting, the real feel temperatures during this incident were as low as -15 Degrees. Thank you to the mutual aid departments that assisted in cleaning up supply line from our Engine.
