Smoke Showing on Arrival

 

Buchanan Valley FD along with surrounding mutual aid fire departments were dispatched for a possible House Fire on Bottom Road (Box 27-5) in Franklin Twp. Engine-Tanker 27, Engine 27 & Special Unit 27 with 13 firefighters responded on the box alarm. Engine-Tanker 27 arrived reporting a 1.5 story house with smoke showing. Crews found a Chimney Fire with moderate extension in the roof and walls. Arriving units were assigned to begin opening up the walls and ceilings to extinguish the fire. Firefighters worked for 40 minutes to bring the fire under control. BVFD would like to thank our neighboring departments for their assistance on the house fire.
