Vehicle Fire In Jackson, Transfer To 11
Last evening at 1949 hours, Engine 53-1 was added to a vehicle fire assignment by Chief 140 at Orchard Road and Pigeon Hill Road in Jackson Township and responded immediately with a crew of 6. Chief 140 added Engine 53-1 due to Engine 11 (Nashville) being committed to the 2nd Alarm fire in West Manchester Township. A firefighter from Station 11 arrived and confirmed a fully involved vehicle fire. Engine 53-1 arrived and the crew deployed the bumper line, knocking down the bulk of the fire in less than 1 minute. Engine 12 (North Codorus) arrived and assisted with overhaul. Upon taking up, Chief 140 requested Engine 53-1 transfer to Station 11. The Engine remained at Station 11 for just over an hour. A full crew remained in Station for Engine 53-2 to cover our first due.
