Sherwood Park Fire

Last night, Fire Companies and the First Aid Squad were dispatched for a Chimney fire in Sherwood Park. Long Valley Chief 1 was the first to arrive followed by Fairmount Chief 1 and found there to be extension showing through the exterior vinyl siding. Long Valley Engine 1-1 and Engine 1-2 were the first arriving units and went to work. Crews began searching for the fire and began overhaul to find the seat of the fire. Crews pulled the siding and found charring in the walls. The fire is under investigation by Washington Township PD. Other units on scene were Fairmount Tender 2-7, Engine 2-1, Engine 2-2, Schooleys Quint 3-9, and Engine 3-1.

Within a couple minutes of clearing, fire companies then responded to an electrical issue on Fairmount Road. Fairmount crews searched the basement and found the source to be from the furnace. All companies cleared the scene after an hour.
