Entries in Sellersville (11)



Early this morning, Sellersville Volunteers and mutual aid Departments were alerted to Main Street and Green Street in the Borough for a reported apartment fire. Chief 27 arrived to have fire showing from the C/D corner of the house and everyone reported to be out. Engine 27-1 arrived and stretched a line to extinguish a bulk of the fire. Due to the deck being compromised and the house being balloon construction, a secondary hand line was stretched from side A to be able to access the interior and extinguish the remaining fire.

Great job to all units working to keep the fire in check.

Units on scene: Engine 27-1, Tower 27, Tower 26, Rescue 26, Engine 59-1, Squirt 18, Engine 58 for RIT, as well as Medic 151, Montgomery Engine 75, Air 75, and Squad 72.




Box 27-11

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

And thank you to Tower 18 and Engine 17 from Quakertown for standing by at our Station
