At 11:32 pm Tuesday night, Engine 574, Tanker and Truck 57 were alerted to assist the Robert Fulton FC on a house fire in the 1400 block of Tanning Yard Hollow Road in Fulton Township. Engine 89-3 reported fire showing from 2 miles out and arrived with a 2.5 story single family residence with fire from the attached garage extending into the main house.
The Engine Companies from 89 stretched multiple lines and made a great stop on the fire to keep it from extending into the living area of the house. Tanker 57 established the water supply using a nurse tanker system. Truck 57 placed ladders, completed a primary search of the second floor and assisted with opening up. Engine 574 (as the 4th due Engine) set up a draft for filling tankers and filled 4 (appx. 12,000 gallons). Crews worked together on overhaul and final extinguishment, clearing the scene at 2:15 am, with another 45 minutes of cleanup at the station.
Thanks to Tom Amico for the photos and Christiana Tanker 52 for standing by at QFD.
