At 1100 hours, the Sellersville Fire Department was dispatched to 1 Carillon Hill Road for the report of a building fire.  Police arrived on scene and reported heavy smoke and fire. Chief 27 (R.

Engine 60 was positioned midway as well and hand pulled a supply line through back yards of neighboring houses to another hydrant. Numerous elevated master streams were used, along with ground master streams and hand lines. The fire was put under control at 13:01. We would also like to thank W.B. Homes for the use of their excavator and North Penn Water Authority for their assistance and upgrades to our water system. Thank you also to the parents picking up their Kindergarteners at Sellersville Elementary for your understanding due to the inconvenience of roads being blocked. Without the assistance of all these agencies and the public we could not have extinguished this fire so quickly and safely.
