On Friday July 3, Air 13 was requested as part of the 2nd alarm to Main St in Mechanicsburg for a working building fire. Units had heavy fire showing on arrival and went defensive from the start due to this being a vacant structure. The Air operated for several hours until returning available. Also, Engine 313 stood by at Co 23’s quarters while they operated at the scene of this fire. No calls were handled by the engine.
