Shortly after 1100 hours, Station 27 and mutal aid companies were dispatched to the Rockhill Mennonite Community for a reported dryer fire. Deputy 27 went on scene and reported an active fire in an industrial sized dryer. Before units arrived on scene, maitnence had partially knocked the fire down with an extinguisher. Wagon 27’s crew finished extinguishing it with a water can and removed the contents. No extension was found and companies went available.
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. Brennan) arrived with fire running the whole bow truss roof and advised fire radio that the building was being razed and no one was to enter the building. Engine 27-1 layed a supply line and supplied the Tower which was positioned on the B,C corner of the building. 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.
Units on scene: Engines 27-1,59-1,60,12,72,74. Towers: 27. Ladders 17,74. Rescue 26 and Rescue 58 for RIT and North Penn Goodwill
