Possible Structure Fire

08/24/2011 – At 11:06hrs the PFD was dispatched to 2282 West Mahantongo Street for a possible structure fire. As apparatus was en-route, county advised that the home owner could smell something burning and could see a light smoke haze.  First arriving E-62 immediately sent a crew in the house with a thermal camera to search for the source of the smoke. Meanwhile, E-62 placed a 1-3/4” in service to standby in case it was needed inside. Crews searched the house and made their way to the attic where they found insulation smoldering above a light fixture. The ceiling was opened up and the insulation and light fixture were removed from the house and wet down. Units remained in service for approximately 1-1/2 hrs. Photos from Yorkville Hose Facebook
