Busy Day on the West Shore

Posted by: Shaun Donovan

The West Shore Bureau of Fire responded to 6 alarms during the course of the day on Thursday January 8th.  The Day started with two simultaneous calls for smoke in a building.  One call was in the townhouses in the Copper Ridge development, and the other was at the former Lemoyne Middle School.

During the afternoon hours the engine and Squad company ran three back to back motor vehicle accidents, two in the Borough of Lemoyne and one on Cumberland Boulevard in Camp Hill.

While on the third crash at 12th Street and Indiana Ave, company 13 was alerted to a 1st alarm structure fire in the Borough of New Cumberland.  Units immediately responded and were the first arriving units on scene.  Firefighters worked throughout the evening to bring the fire under control and then clean up the gear back at the station.

Thank you to Companies 28 (Mechanicsburg), 33 (New Kingstown), and Dauphin County 37 (Susquehanna Twp.) for covering our stations during the fire.
