Oven Fire, Woodside Ave, Spring Twp
Mon, May 24th, 2021 2:09:00 pm On Monday afternoon, May 24, TSFRS Engine 85, Wyo FD Tower 79, along with Shillington Engine 36, West Reading Engine 64, Mohnton Engine 57, Western Berks FD Ladder 18, Muhlenberg FD 66 for RIT and Western Berks EMS Medic 6532 were dispatched for a reported residential structure fire in the 300 block of Woodside Avenue, in the West Lawn section of Spring Township. Operations were assigned to Fire Op's 1. L79 responded in place of TW79.

Chief 85 I(Hackman) arrived to find a two story twin, with normal conditions from sides Alpha, Bravo, and Delta, and established Woodside Avenue Command. Command completed a 360 and found light smoke showing from an open door and window on the first floor. E85s crew under Capt Nuebert made access and reported a fire confined to the oven and apparently out with a significant smoke condition throughout. Accordingly, Command placed the fire under control and released all companies with the exception of E85, L79 and L18.

Companies set up positive pressure ventilation while a L79 firefighter accessed the attached duplex half to check on conditions and complete atmospheric monitoring. Companies continued with positive pressure ventilation on all floors and completed atmospheric monitoring on both halves of the duplex. When companies reported no visible smoke and a zero meter response, ventilation operations were terminated. E85 crew pulled the stove out, secured power at the receptacle and secured gas at the valve.

Command then released all companies and completed the investigation prior to leaving.

Command: Chief 85
Units: E85, E36, E64, E57, L79, L18, 66RIT, Med 6532
