Elk Box 7-01 Structure Fire

1/29/24 13:15 – Station 1 was alerted for mutual aid for a working structure fire along Route 219 in Horton Township. Elk Chief 7 went enroute and requested a second alarm due to heavy smoke visible in the area, he arrived on scene establishing command and confirming a working fire. Engine 1 (Lt. Martinson), Rescue 1 (AC Reed), Tanker 1 (FF Knapp), Fire Police, and later Brush 1 (Capt. M. Furlong) all responded. Engine 1 arrived second in right after Elk Engine 72. A crew of three from Engine 1 pulled a second line of Engine 72 and assisted Horton’s crew at the alpha side of the structure with fire suppression. The rest of Engine 1’s crew went to the charlie side of the structure to assist with fire suppression. The crew from Rescue 1 also split assisting with fire suppression. Engine 1 set up a dump site to supply Engine 72 while a tanker shuttle was operated. Fire Police shut Route 219 down due to motorists being uncooperative and needing room for tankers to dump water. Multiple other mutual aid units arrived on scene assisting with overhaul. Once Elk Chief 7 determined overhaul was complete remaining units were released and the box placed available.
