Ice Storm Keeps Volunteers Busy

Once last night’s winter storm passed through our area, the effects of it were felt not only in our coverage area, but through out the entire County. At 0823 hours, Engine 27 was first dispatched to a wires call in the area of Bethlehem Pike and Green Top Road. Shortly after, another call was dispatched for a reported gas leak in the same area, which ended up being the same as the wires call. While on scene waiting for PP&L, another wires arching call was dispatched on Forrest Road in the area of Mountian View Road, which was handled by Engine 26 and Montgomery Engine 72. 

At 1134 hours, the Tower and Assistant Chief went to assist Station 59 on the reported dwelling fire. A burnt surge protector was found to be the problem and the company was available shortly after.

Diner Fire in the Borough

Shortly after 8:30 AM on Sunday morning, Station 27 was dispatched for a building fire at the A&N Diner on South Main Street.  The dispatch included Rescue and Tower 26, Engine 59 and Montgomery County Squad 75.  A tanker task force was automatically dispatched due to the recent work on the local water tower.  Assistant 27 arrived on the scene with a small fire on the exterior of the building, from the roof area. Rescue 58 was then dispatched for RIT.  Wagon 27 laid in and went to work with a 2.5” line.  Tower 27 was positioned on the A/B corner and sent their crew to the roof.  Rescue 26 made a long lay from Diamond St as a secondary water supply, and Tower 26 set up on the C/D corner.  The crew from Engine 27-1 assisted the roof crew, and Engine 59 and Squad 75 assisted with manpower.  Montgomery County Engine 74-1 (originally on the tanker task force dispatch) also assisted on scene.  All the crews worked to extinguish a small fire in the roof before it spread into the building.  

While units were committed at the scene, Montco Engine 74-2 handled a fire alarm activation at a residence in Hilltown Township.  After that, they stood by at Station 27.

Box 27-13

At 20:00 hours, Station 27 was dispatched to Tactical Box 27-13 for a report of wires arching inside of a dwelling. While Wagon 27 was responding, Bucks County Radio advised that Police were onscene with an active fire in a dryer and the basement filled with smoke. The box assignment was transmitted bringing Rescue and Tower 26, Engine 59, and Montgomery County Engine 72. The Wagon’s crew went to the basement and found the fire contained to the dryer while the Tower’s crew went to the apartments above to check for extension. The assignent was then held to Station 27 apparatus. 

Tonight serves as a reminder that it is important to clean out the lint trap on your dryer as well as the outside vent. The build up of excess lint can easily catch fire and turn into a dangerous situation. It is also important to remember to only use your dryer when you are home. If an incident like this happens and you aren’t home to notice, the situation could be much worse than just a dryer on fire.
