Garages Burn off North 13th Street
Mon. Aug 10th 2020

23:06 hrs / 500 N. 13th Street (Rear) / Box 01-01 / C Platoon

The box was transmitted for multiple calls reporting a garage fire off Birch Street.  Ladder 3 arrived reporting a garage well-involved with possible exposure issues. Engine 1 established a positive water supply and stretched a 1-3/4" hand line via an alley off Green Street to knock-down the bulk of the fire.  Car 4 (J. Stoudt) arrived and established command. The fire involved a row of 4 garages in a single-story structure to the rear of 500 N. 13th Street, with two of the bays heavily involved in fire.  Firefighters forced entry into the other bays to knock-down fire extending at the ceiling level.  There was no extension to any of the surrounding homes.   Car 4 placed the fire under control with overhaul at 23:26 hours.  The Office of the Fire Marshal is investigating.

Engines - 1, 9, 3, 7

Ladders - 3, Tower 1

Rescue 1, Medic 4, Car 4 (J. Stoudt), Car 9 (Glore), FM 10 (Searfoss), Car 23 (Zulick & Gracie)
