Engine 2 and the tanker were dispatched on the first alarm assignment, assisting 53 (Conestoga) on the reported building fire on Main Street. First arriving units from 53 reported a working fire, and smoke was visible from the New Danville area. Engine 2 crew, along with crew from Squad 55 (which ran extra), were assigned various fireground tasks, including staging officer and operations sector. Tanker supplied several loads of water. The involved building was an old barn, which had been converted into a business on the first floor, and an apartment on the upper level. The numerous renovations that had taken place over the years created numerous void spaces, allowing fire to travel quickly throughout the structure. This fire was a very labor intensive operation, with numerous crews working to open up and extinguish fire. The 55 units returned to station around 2300.

Smoke in the structure
Saturday, May 24, 2014 12:50
Engine 55-2 and Engine 905 (Blue Rock- Millersville station) were detailed to a large campground for an odor investigation. Facility staff on scene reporting an odor of a possible electrical fire in a small mobile home. Units arrived and used thermal imagers to locate hot wiring within a wall. With no immediate danger being obvious, we allowed maintenance staff to disassemble the paneling, rather than tear into it ourselves and cause further damage. Upon opening up the walls, it was found that some wiring had melted and was starting to burn. After finding no immediate hazards, the structure was turned back over to staff for further repairs. Luckily this situation was detected early. Had staff not secured power to the unit when they did, this could have resulted in a working fire in a short time.
