Rescue Runs 2 Bells in Harrisburg City
February 7, 2020

This afternoon, Harrisburg City units were dispatched to the 500 Block of Emerald Street (Uptown) for a reported house fire. Units arrived with smoke showing from the 3rd floor with reports of people trapped. Command requested the Second Alarm Assignment. Rescue 91 (FF Marzen) arrived and assisted with opening up for engine companies and hitting hot spots.

While operating, a Mayday was transmitted by a Harrisburg City FF who was forced to bail out of the 3rd floor due to rapidly deteriorating conditions while searching for trapped occupants. The FF was able to be reached via ground ladder and was uninjured.
