Fire District 63

December 30, 2008- Vehicle Fire

December 30, 2008- At 10:30 stations 2 & 4 were dispatched to the area of West Liberty Street and Railroad Street, Schuylkill Haven Boro, for a reported vehicle fire.  As Duty Chief 720 went responding, he received a second call back saying that Schuylkill Haven PD was on scene confirming a working vehicle fire.  Chief 720 arrived on scene shortly thereafter and noticed that the vehicle was endangering a garage.  Within seconds the fire spread quickly thru the garage door prompting Chief Peel to fulfill the first alarm assignment bringing in station 1 for their Ladder.  However, do to a quick knock down on the vehicle fire itself, there was only minimal damage to the garage.  Crews doused the remaining hot spots on the car and continued to search for extension in the garage.  All 3 stations were busy for roughly 1 hour.
