At 1:40 pm Tuesday, Rescue 57 was dispatched to assist Bart Township Fire Company on a mobile home fire in the 1700 block of Mine Road in Bart Township. Gap Fire Company Chief 42 arrived shortly after dispatch and reported three non-occupied mobile homes on fire with several other exposures. BTFC upgraded the incident and requested the “Working Fire Dispatch”, that alerted Engine 574 and Tanker 57.
QFD units arrived with the Rescue and Engine crews assisting with fire attack and overhaul, and the Tanker operating in the Water Supply. QFD Fire Police assisted in closing down the roadway in the area. QFD was in service about 1.5 hours.
On a side note, our very own FF Craig Hassinger (USAF) was on board Rescue 57 as he is on leave from his assignment at Malmstrom AFB in Montana. We always love to see Craig and his family back in Quarryville and running calls.
Thanks to Tom Amico for the photos and West Willow Fire Company Tanker 60 for standing by.
