Small Outside Fire

Company 1 units responded to the Borough's Electric Generating Plant on Sheffler Dr for a reported fire outside the building. Engine 1-1 arrived, meeting with Electric Dept staff, finding no active fire but smoke from one of the generating engines' catalytic converters. Due to the location, Tower 1 was used to access the unit and investigate. The bumper line off Engine 1-1 and a handline from Tower 1's bucket was used to wet the area down. Units operated for an hour and 30 minutes before being placed in service by Command 1 (Asst. Chief Myers).
