At 2:40 pm Friday, Truck and Rescue 57 were alerted to assist the Rawlinsville Fire Company on a grain bin fire at 1196 Holtwood Road in Drumore Township. Chief 58 arrived with smoke showing from a 30,000 bushel grain bin.
Engine 581 laid a supply line in with Tanker 58 as the nurse tanker. Command 58 called for additional resources bringing Tanker 57 to the scene.
Truck 57 set up to access the upper access doors finding a fire in the top portion of the grain (sorghum/milo). The 1.5″ bucket line was used to flow water into the bin and extinguish the fire. Units remained while the owners transferred the grain into another bin.
QFD units operated just over 5.5 hours. Thanks to Tom Amico for the photos.
