Elkland, Osceola, Valley Ambulance Dispatched For House Fire

At 11:40 PM on Friday, Elkland, Osceola & Valley Ambulance have been dispatched to a house fire at 104 North Street in Elkland. Knoxville & Nelson dispatched  mutual aid.
12:34 AM--FIRE UNDER CONTROL. 
1:01 AM--FIRE OUT. 
Dispatched at 11:40 pm with Osceola Fire Dept and VCAA to a possible house fire on North Street BOX 3-02
Chief 3-10 (A Walters) arrived on scene and confirmed fire in the structure! All residents had gotten out of the house!
Chief 3 (M Goodrich) arrived and upon Chief 3-10’s report established Elkland Command
Engine 14-1 from Osceola arrived on the scene first and with an interior crew with assistance from Chief 14 (K McLean) went to work! Some of Dept 3 firefighters arrived and back laid 5 inch hose from 14-1 to a hydrant 75 feet away.
Engine 3-3 from Elkland arrived shortly after Osceola gained entry to the house and with their crew went inside with Chief 3-30 (B Davenport) & Capt 3 (A Swan), assisted Osceola.
Elkland Command called for second alarm for extra manpower for interior crews and RIT.
Fire was brought under control at approximately 12:30 am and was out by 1:30 am.
Very strong work on the initial attack by Osceola and subsequent back up by Elkland.
No injuries were reported!
On a personal note,
This was as close to text book as you can get and with great success! After the knockdown a PPV fan was put in place at the front door and utilized! I have never been so proud and excited of the excellent work by everyone!

Thanks to Osceola (14), VCAA (25), Knoxville (6), Nelson (18), Lawrenceville (8) and Tuscarora (39)
THANK YOU EVERYBODY,
CHIEF 3-10
Andy Walters
