2nd Alarm, Grandview Blvd, Wyomissing
Sat, Jun 15th, 2019 6:26:00 pm 2nd Alarm Structure Fire, Grandview Blvd Wyomissing Boro

Early Saturday evening June 15, Wyo FD and TSFRS along with our mutual aid partners from West Reading (Engine 64), Shillington (Engine 36), Kenhorst (Engine 69), Reading FD (Ladder 1), Temple (Rescue 11) and Western Berks EMS, were sent to Grandview Blvd in the Wyomissing Hills section of Wyomissing Boro for a structure fire. Communications advised that this was for a house on fire and unknown if anyone was home. While companies were enroute, Western Berks Fire Deputy 18-2 (Stine) reported smoke showing from a distance.

DC18-2 arrived and reported a dwelling with heavy fire on the Bravo side with a hydrant three houses away and established Wyomissing Command. E85 under Acting Capt. Risell arrived and laid 400' of 5-inch supply line from the hydrant to the dwelling, stretched a 3-inch blitz-line and began to extinguish the fire. E85 members also stretched a 2" attack hose line to the front door. TW79 under Capt. Nester arrived and positioned in front of the structure. The TW79 crew then split to begin searching inside and opening the roof. DC18-2 completed a 360 and reported heavy fire on the Bravo side with extension into the attic area.

As Chief 85 arrived, Command struck a second alarm resulting in dispatch of Reading Engine 3, Greenfields Engine 55, Western Berks FD Engine 18-1 and Ladder 18, Laureldale Engine E13, Muhlenberg Ladder 10 and Mount Penn Rescue 1. Chief 85 met with DC18-2 for a progress report and assumed Command. He then confirmed the address, with extension into an adjacent home, two hose lines in service, and primary searches underway. Command also reported that EMS was needed and requested Adamstown Truck 11 to relocate to Station 85. Shortly thereafter Command reported three hose lines in service and primary searches were complete with one pet removed.

Crews operated two hose lines inside the home and applied one hose on the exterior of both the fire building and the adjacent property. TW79s driver successfully vented the roof, and approximately 20 minutes after dispatch the fire was placed under control. As the operation wound down, second alarm companies were released. Reading E3 was rerouted to Robert Rd behind the fire building for bushes burning, apparently from falling embers. Crews continued to wet down hot spots, ventilate and complete salvage and overhaul. FM43 (Hatt) arrived on scene and was briefed on the findings and actions taken.

As crews completed their assignments Command released their companies. TW79 and E85 crews completed a final inspection of the area to confirm all fire was out and returned. FM43 and Chief 85 would remain on scene completing the investigation. At the completion of the investigation, the property was turned over to a damage contractor to secure the property.
