Early this morning the Wagon Company was dispatched to a Dwelling Fire - Chimney Fire in South Londonderry. The Wagon w/3 (SGT McCullough) and Engine 2 arrived with fire showing from the chimney. A line was stretched to the front door while the Wagon Company also made roof access to extinguish the fire with dry chemical which was confined to the chimney.
The Wagon added on and arrived just after Chief 7. The crew deployed an attack line, forced doors in the rear, and advanced into the basement to find a well involved fire. The fire was held to a single room. ... See moreSee less

Today at 1645 hours the Palmyra Volunteers and surrounding departments were dispatched for a reported house on fire in the borough. Duty 1 (Capt. Spencer), Wagon 1 w/3 (SGT McCullough) and Tower 1 w/ 5 (Lt. Robb) made the response. The Captain arrived with nothing evident while the Wagon laid in and stretched the bumper line as the Tower laddered the building. Initially the box was held to Company 1 as the fire in the basement was knocked with a can and no obvious extension was visible. However after opening up the floor on the first floor the fire was found running the floor boards with smoke in the attached exposure, the box was then upgraded. The remainder of the floor and areas of the wall on the first floor were opened up and the fire was extinguished. Both homes were cleared of smoke and carbon monoxide and the fire building was cleaned. Units then took up and returned available.
