Incidents for which we were dispatched (see Note 1)Hide

1952
Fire, Dormar Mfg, Gratz
Detail >>
At 6:30PM an alarm was turned in for a fire in the Dormar Manufacturing Company in Gratz. The entire cutting building measuring 300? x 50? was destroyed in the fire. Total loss was over $100,000. Firemen from the Gratz Fire Company were assisted at the scene by firemen from the Pillow Fire Company, Reliance Hose Company No. 1 of Elizabethville, Millersburg Fire Company, Halifax and Community Fire Company, Liberty Hose Company No. 2 of Lykens, Berrysburg and Community Fire Company, Valley View Fire Company, Klingerstown Fire Company, and the Wiconisco Fire Company.
1983
Car Fire, Food-Rite Parking Lot (Box 22-1)

1991
Brush Fire, Mountain St (Box 23-11)

2001
Barn Fire, 5600 Route 209 (Box 21-6)
Detail >>
A first alarm assignment was dispatched for a barn fire at Mattern's in Loyalton. Companies 21 (engine, tanker, rescue), 22 (engine, tanker, truck), and 26 (engine, tanker) responded. County reported that a barn was fully involved, had spread to several vehicles adjacent to the barn, was endangering a home next to the barn, and had begun spreading through a field behind the barn. Engine-22, under the command of Lieutenant-22, was first on scene reporting that the barn was lost and requested a second alarm assignment plus additional brush units to stop the spread of the field fire. Several vehicles were on fire and personnel used what water they had to stop the advancement of the fire towards the house. Companies 20 (engine, tanker, truck, brush), 27 (engine, tanker), and 23 (engine, tanker, squad, brush) and brush 26 were dispatched. A tanker shuttle was set up and knockdown was achieved. A family dog perished in the barn, but the house was untouched and the field fire was stopped. Low manpower was a factor.
2003
Structure w/fatal, 634-36 West St (Box 24-1)
Detail >>
Company members had just returned from a carnival parade at Wiconisco. Muir Engine-650 was returning to quarters. When they passed through the Borough of Williamstown, they saw heavy smoke in the area. They turned onto West Street and discovered a fully involved duplex two-story residence with entrapment. After notifying Dauphin County, the first alarm asignment was dispatched, bringing: Engine and Tanker 24; Engine, Squad, and Tanker 23; Truck-22; and Engine and Rescue 66. Most units were still in Wiconisco, and responded from that location. Engine-650 expended their available water attempting to gain access to the structure to effect a rescue, but the crew was turned back by heavy fire conditions. Truck-22 responded with five personnel and arrived on scene behind Engine-650. Unable to get close enough to use the aerial device, members pulled and set up ladders on sides 1 and 3. Crews entered the structure for further rescue attempts which were unsuccessful. Command later requested Engine-22, Rescue-21, Reinerton Engine and Tower City Air Light. Chief-24's residence was two feet from side-4, and exposure control was maintained there as well as side-2, where another structure was only three feet away. After extensive interior firefighting operations, the fire was controlled. Personnel then attempted to locate victims that had been trapped inside. Two persons were located and turned over to the Coroner's personnel and PSP. Company members assisted with salvage and overhaul until being released by command.
2006
Structure Fire, 129 East Street (Box 24-1)
Detail >>
Truck-22 was dispatched, along with Companies 23, 24, and 66, to 129 East Street in Williamstown for a structure fire. Truck-22 responded with a crew of seven, but was canceled while enroute. This fire location was the scene of a multiple structure fire two days prior to this call. The property owner was cleaning out the attic of burned items and saw a smoke haze and smelled something burning. The crew from Company-24 discovered a smoldering bird nest in the attic.
2014
Accident with injuries, 25 Main Street (Box 22-1)
Detail >>

He placed Rescue 23 in service. Engine 22 responded class one with 4 and Utility 22 with 3. On arrival, the crew began patient assessment and immobilization of one patient with pain, along with assessing the remaining patients. Two EMS units from 24, one from Schuylkill 959 (Tower City) and Medic 6 arrived on scene along with PSP. The crew assisted with transferring the patients to their units for transport to the hospital.
