House Fire at 244 North Main Street

    

At 2:24 p.m., a male entered the Headquarters Fire Station and reported that smoke was coming from a house on North Main Street. Simultaneously, the Borough Box Alarm was sounded for the reported house on fire at 244 North Main Street. Engine 1-2 went on scene within minutes and reported a large two story brick semi-detached, single family home with smoke showing from the second floor. Engine 1-2 took its own water supply and advanced an attack line to the second floor. The fire involved a room and contents on the second floor with extension to the hallway.

Truck 1 vented and laddered the building. Units were on scene for an extended period of time for salvage and overhaul. CPD and Fire Police were also on scene.
