Mutual Aid – 4 Alarm Commercial Structure Fire with MAYDAY

05/31/2012 – At 18:05hrs, The RIT team (E-11 and E-71) along with L-51 were dispatched to 20 W. Main St. in Schuylkill Haven for a working fire in a gun shop. Multiple buildings were well involved upon arrival. L-51 set up on the B side and sent crews to the roof and to the interior on side A. The city RIT team was reassigned to fire attack once Englewood RIT arrived. After the bulk of the fire was knocked down, a MAYDAY was called from the second floor of a rear storage area. A firefighters foot became stuck after a section of the floor gave way. The RIT teams were activated and quickly removed the firefighter using a stokes basket. The firefighter was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries and released a short time later. Crews were on scene for approximately 3 hours. Pictures by Christina Carls and Coal Region Fire.
