At 8:25 pm Thursday, QFD and mutual aid were dispatched to 62 Stone Road in Eden Township for a barn fire. Chief 572 and Chief 57 arrived to find a 20′ X 30′ two-story garage-type barn well involved and requested the “working fire dispatch”.
Engine 574 had three lines stretched, Tanker 57 had the water supply and the remainder of the units assisted with fire attack, opening up, ladders, RIT, water supply and manpower staging. The fire was knocked down quickly, with the incident being placed under control at 9:11 pm.
QFD and mutual aid fire police blocked and detoured traffic. QFD Special Division members provided drinks to the scene. Engine 502 (Willow Street) and Tanker 51 (Bart Township) provided stand by at our station.
Thanks to everyone who assisted and to Tom Amico for the photos.
