Dumpster Fire on Primrose Ln

     

Saturday, February 11, 2017 00:40  Just after midnight Friday night the company was dispatched for a reported dumpster fire on Primrose Ln in Ephrata Township.  Assistant 15 (S. Kintzler) responded and was advised of multiple calls reporting a dumpster on fire.  Asst 15 arrived finding a fully involved dumpster beginning to catch a nearby mobile home on fire.  The assignment was upgraded bringing mutual aid from Company 12 (Akron) and Company 16 (Lincoln).  Engine 15-1 stretched 2 handlines and began to knock the dumpster fire and checked inside the residence for extension.  Finding no issue inside crews focused on the dumpster.  Crews working for several hours knocking the fire down and checking for hot spots.
