Just after 7 am Sunday December 9th the Pioneers along with mutual aid from Lincoln, Akron, Reamstown and Farmersville were dispatched to the 200 block of West Franklin St in Ephrata Borough for a reported house fire. LCWC advised the caller reporting an attic fire, Deputy 16 arrived on scene with heavy smoke and confirmed the report. Crews from Engine 15-1 and Rescue 16 made entry encountering fire on the 3rd floor. Crews from all companies worked for 2 hours to bring the incident under control, units remained on scene until just before noon.
Thanks to Engine 3-1 (Martindale) and Truck 11 (Adamstown) for covering our first due while we were out, standby companies handled a fire alarm on Ridge Ave while units were on the fire.
