MAY 20th 2018 – Just before 4 pm Sunday afternoon Company 15 was dispatched for a vehicle fire on E Mohler Church Rd in Ephrata Twp. As Deputy 15 (S. Kintzler) went en route he was advised by LCWC of a second call from the address reporting a working vehicle fire that had started the house on fire. Deputy 15 arrived confirming the report and requested the working fire dispatch. Initially the occupant of the house could not be accounted for but was later found to be not home at the time of the fire. The Pioneers along with mutual aid worked for 30 min to bring the fire under control, damage to the structure was limited to mainly the exterior, the vehicle was a total loss. The Pioneers were assisted by Lincoln, Akron, Martindale, Reamstown, Garden Spot Fire-Rescue, Denver and the air unit from Reinholds. Truck 25 (Lititz) stood by in our quarters to cover any additional calls.
