Welcome home, Matt!

Today is the day SFD Junior Firefighter Matthew Maginnis graduates from Army National Guard boot camp in Fort Benning, GA. You may recall that Matt left for basic training at the end of June. While he was in Georgia, he was able to use his life saving skills when a fellow cadet was choking in the dining hall. Matt remained calm as he performed the Heimlich Maneuver while calling for his Drill Sergeant. We’re very proud of you, and can’t wait for your safe return to Sellersville!



Early this morning at 0042 hours, as line of severe thunderstorms rolled through most of Bucks County, BCR transmitted Tactical Box 27-13 for a reported house fire in Sellersville Borough. Chief and Assistant 27 (Wagner, Conicelli)  arrived simultaneously to a 3 story SFD with smoke showing from the attic. Wagon 27 (Chief McDonald) dropped in from the hydrant and stretched an inch and 3/4 line to the attic to begin extinguishing the fire. Tower 27 (Captain Garges) arrived and split their crew to open up for the Wagon Company and throw ladders as their chauffer went to the roof.

Crews from Engine and Tower 26, Montgomery Air 75, Engine 58, and Engine 59-1 were all on scene also and assisted with salvage and overhaul, while Ladder 18 and Montgomery Engine 75 were at the Station.



Early Morning Car Fire

Shortly before 2:00AM, SFD volunteers were dispatched to the 200 block of Keystone Dr in Hilltown Township for a car fire. Chief and Assistant 27 arrived to find a parked car with an engine compartment fire. The crew from Engine 27-1 (Battalion McDonald) extinguished the fire and checked for extension into the passenger compartment. Our fire police assisted with traffic control on the roadway near the incident.




Early this evening, the SFD was dispatched for a fuel spill in the 400 block of Lawn Avenue in Sellersville Borough. Police were originally dispatched for a 3 vehicle accident, which all 3 cars had slid off the roadway. Engine 27-1 (LT Gray) and Utility 27 used what oil dry they had, but due the large area of the road affected, Public Works was called to come spread stone cinders to help solve the issue.




At 0217 hours, while other Upper Bucks County units were operating on a building fire in Springfield Township,  Tower 27 was dispatched to cover Station 18 (West End) along with Rescue 26. Shortly after being dispatched to cover, Springfield Command resquested the 2nd alarm be transmitted for manpower, which brought the Tower and Wagon to the scene. The Tower and Wagon’s crews reported to manpower where they were immedietly sent to work to perform overhaul and help finishing extinguishing hot spots.


Outbuilding Fire

SFD Volunteers and mutual aid were dispatched to the 1200 block of Lawn Avenue in West Rockhill Township for a reported outbuilding fire with the caller reporting visible flames. Chief 27 (Wagner) and Assistant 27 (Conicelli) arrived and had an abandoned structure in the rear of the property still burning. Engine 27-1 (LT Gray) arrived to make quick work of what was left of the building while the Wagon assisted the with pulling the remaining remnants apart.
