Structure Fire, Penn Avenue, Wyomissing
Sat, May 11th, 2019 9:46:00 pm On Friday night, May 10, Wyo FD along with TSFRS Engine 85, Shillington Engine 36, Kenhorst Engine 69, Mohnton Engine 57, West Reading Ladder 64, Mt. Penn Rescue 1 for RIT, and Western Berks EMS were dispatched to the 1600 block of Penn Ave. in Wyomissing for a possible structure fire. The fire was reported to be the side of a dwelling on fire.

Tower 79 under Capt. Nester arrived and found fire burning in the front porch of a semi-detached dwelling that was unoccupied at the time. Smoke was visible with indications of electrical arcing along the siding and gutters. Capt 79 established command and completed his 360. Engine 85 under Capt Bingaman arrived and took their own hydrant. Crews laddered the front and side of the porch and stretched a 2" attack line and booster line. Capt 85 entered the home via a second-floor window and was able to shut down power at the main panel.

Deputy 85 (Schartel) arrived and assumed command after a face to face with Capt 79. Due to the electrical issues, PPL was requested ASAP. After the internal power was secured, TW79 crew opened the roof and other companies assisted with pulling the ceiling of the porch to expose the burning material. Both hose lines were operated into the concealed space to extinguish the fire. FM 43 (Hatt) was special called and responded.

After PPL secured power to the residence and no fire extension was found beyond the porch, all companies were gradually released except for E85 and TW79 who assisted FM43 and Chief 85 with the investigation.

Command: Deputy 85
Units: TW79, E85, RE85, E69,E36, L64, E57, R1 RIT, WBEMS
