Mutual Aid – Working Structure Fire

6/6/2011 – At 08:35hrs the P.F.D. R.I.T. south team (Stations 10 & 70) were dispatched to assist the Cressona Fire Department at 49 River Street for a Working Structure Fire. First arriving units were met with heavy fire conditions which prompted command to upgrade to a second alarm assignment which then added Stations 50 & 60 from the city along with other mutual aid. When city units arrived on scene they set up R.I.T. on Side A of the structure while other crews assisted with ventilation and overhaul. The last of the city units cleared the scene at approximately 10:30hrs. Photos courtesy of Coal Region Fire
