At 02:23 this morning, Station 33 was alerted to the 200 block of White School Road in Honey Brook Township for an appliance fire.
Initial reports indicated a "shredder" possibly on fire, however the remaining details were sparse and unclear. Deputy 33 arrived to find fire showing from the alpha side of a single story commercial building, requested the building fire assignment upgrade along with the working fire dispatch, and established command. Engine 33-1 arrived as the first due engine, laying 500' of LDH from the intersection of White School Road and Todd Road to the fire scene. The crew of Engine 33-1 stretched one attack line and found a large piece of commercial equipment inside the building involved, with fire spreading up the walls and the ceiling of the structure. Engine 33-5 took the second due engine assignment, providing Engine 33-1 with water and additional manpower. Crews operated for roughly 1.5 hours before clearing the scene. The cause of this fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshalls Office.
