Large Brush Fire In The First Due


On February 24th around 11:47hrs, Company 5 was alerted for a reported outside fire On Mt. Joy Road in Lawrence Township. As Chief 5 responded, township police arrived on scene and advised a very large fire in a wooded area and apparatus would have to access an old tram road which no large apparatus would be able to access. Immediately additional resources were added to the assignment. After hand crews were able to get a knock on the fire and control lines were established, crews then began extensive overhaul. Personnel operated for over 2 hours and a total of 7.5 acres burned.
