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.





At 1652 hours, SFD Volunteers were dispatched to assist the West End Fire Company of Quakertown, on a dwelling fire at Old Bethlehem Pike and Rich Hill Road in Richland Township. Battalion 18 (Wilhelm) arrived first to have smoke showing from a 2.5 story apartment building. Tower 27 (Captain Garges) responded and were directed to the C/D corner and ordered to start opening the roof. Before the Tower’s arrival, Wagon 27 (LT Gray) was dispatched to cover Station 17, but were redirected to the scene for additional manpower. The Wagon’s crew supplied the Tower with water, while their crew placed ladders and vented the D side.

A total of 3 SFD members were taken from the scene and transported to local hospitals. 2 were transported for heat exhaustion and another after being hit in the head with a master stream from a freak accident. All are in good spirits.

Special thanks to Montgomery Ladder 75 for standing by at the Station and for assisting in getting the Wagon and Tower back in service, as well as Rescue 60 for coming up to assist with anything else we may have needed.

At 1438 hours, tactical box 27-14 was dispatched for a reported train derailment in Sellersville Borough. Shortly after Deputy 26 (Boshell) went responding, BCR advised the best access to the train was going to be from Jessica Lane off of Ninth Street.

Deputy 26, Deputy 59 (Chavous), and Engine 27-1 (LT Gray) all arrived on Jessica simultaneously. The Chief’s climbed up the grade to the tracks to meet the engineer and conductor of the train and found that 3 refrigerated box cars carrying butter had rolled over the tracks and were leaking diesel fuel from their reefer units. Engine 27-1’s crew placed a ladder for better access and deployed 600’ of 3” line to their high rise bag as a protection line in case of any fire, as Chief 27 (Wagner) arrived and established Sellersville Command.

Montgomery County Rescue 74 (Souderton) and Ladder 75 (Telford) made access from the Church Street side of the tracks from the cemetery with Utility and Hazmat 27, where they deployed booms and absorbent prodructs to contain the diesel fuel from traveling further down the creek.

SFD units remained on scene until 2130 hours until the cleanup crews arrived to begin the long cleanup process.

Units on scene - Engine 27-1, Utility and Hazmat 27, Rescue 26, Rescue 59, Rescue 74, Engine 74-1, Ladder 75, Hazmat 89-2 from the County Hazmat team, and Bucks 1 (County Command Vehicle)

Other agencies on scene - Perkasie Police, Sellersville and Perkasie Emergency managment representatives, Grandview Health Medic 151, Pennsylvania State Police, PA DEP, and the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
