***2nd Alarm Fire in Swatara Township***
The Truck is just clearing a 2nd Alarm House Fire in Swatara Township. Initial units from Swatara Township arrived with the conditions shown in the picture with reports of People trapped. Swatara Township Units quickly rescued 1 occupant from the home on their arrival. Truck 32 arrived as the 2nd due Truck and performed a primary search of the exposure and secondary search of the fire building. The Truck crew also laddered the building and opened up for the Engine Companies.
The station maintained a staffed engine company which was then sent to an additional Swatara Box for an odor of smoke in a Laundromat. The Truck Company cleared the first fire and took in this box and arrived as the 1st due Truck Company. The Laundromat Box was quickly scaled back with an issue with a washing machine.

***Harrisburg City 2nd Alarm***
Overnight just after 1am, Harrisburg City Units were sent to the 500-Block of Radnor Street for a House Fire. First arriving units had fire in 2 seperate duplexes on multiple floors. Chief 7 (Bastinelli) requested an additional truck company with the 1st Alarm which sent Truck 32.
As Truck 32 arrived, City Units were making a strong push into the fire buildings and had a significant amount of fire extinguished. Truck 32’s crew began laddering the buildings when some type of explosion occurred in the fire building which forced an evacuation and a mayday to be transmitted as there was believed to be a member from the city unaccounted for. That firefighter was quickly located and the Mayday terminated.
Truck 32 set up and was supplied by Wagon 4 and used an Aerial Master Stream in the 2nd and 3rd floor of the fire building. The Truck crew also assisted with opening up in the exposures for the City line crews.
Crews operated on the scene for 4 hours before clearing. Thank you to Hampden Township Volunteer FD for transferring over to cover our area with the Truck as the station maintained a staffed engine company.

***Overnight House Fire in the Township***
Last night just after midnight, Communications received a single call from a block away reporting a house on fire in 37’s first due sending Engine and Truck 32. The Police Department and Chief 84 arrived and confirmed an address and reported fire throughout the 2nd floor and possible entrapment.
Engine 32-1 (2nd due) arrived and secured 37’s water supply, while Engine 32 (3rd due) secured a second water source. The Truck Company (1st Due Truck) began searching and laddering the building as the Engine Companies from 37 and 32 stretched multiple hand lines and controlled the fire.
All searches were negative for any victims. Command marked control at the 20 minute mark and held the assignment to the resources on the scene. ... See MoreSee Less
Stay safe and warm out there!
Hope all safe. Great team work guys
I know the owner/resident. By sheer luck they were on vacation. They're OK, of course, but shaken and are trying to get a flight home asap.
Thank you so much for responding and searching. That front shot is of the master bedroom (to the right of the chimney) and they likely would have been in there since it started at night.
Ironically, I used to be an EMT and fire fighter. You always hope it never happens to you or yours. I'm just glad everyone is safe.
Thank you again for what you do.
I’m moving to chambersburg
A courageous group!
Job well done especially in such nasty weather!😇🇺🇸😁💖💙💜
Engine’s 32, 32-1, and the Tower currently headed to a 37 box for a house fire. The police department is on the scene with the 2nd floor on fire and possible entrapment. ... See MoreSee Less
Prayers! Be Safe!
They are our neighbors, praying the owners got out. Your crew has been working very fast to control the fire.
Be safe brothers
Tonight during the Regular Monthly Company Meeting, Chauffeur Mike Modica was presented a plaque from the company for his 40+ years of service to Progress during which time he served as a captain and Chairman of the Board.
Also during the meeting, Probationary Firefighters Lucas Fick and Derek Brindle were presented their Black Front’s. These 2 have worked very hard to complete their Probationary packets and get their FF 1 certification to get off of Probationary status. Side note, Derek Brindle is wearing some history with his Dad’s Front with his Grandfathers insert until his new front arrives.
Thank you to Remember it in Glass for the work on the plaque. ... See MoreSee Less

**Colonial Park Garage Fire**
The Engine Company and Chief 2 just cleaned up from an afternoon Garage Fire in Colonial Park’s First Due. Company 33 was originally dispatched for “the area of” Oak Park Rd for a Camper on Fire. Communications then began receiving calls that the back of the house was now on fire and sent additional units.
Engine 33 and Chief 33-1 arrived and confirmed the Camper had extended into an unattached Garage. Engine 32-1 arrived as the 3rd Due Engine Company and laid a supply line to Side C and stretched a line through the woods to assist Lower Paxton Units with Fire Attack and overhaul.
Friendly reminder to the public, please do not run over fire hose when it is laying in the street. Pictures below is the damage it can cause which can have major effects on saving lives and property and actually puts first responders lives in danger. ... See MoreSee Less
Running over supply line should get an attempted murder charge just my opinion
Running over deployed hose lines should not only result in a hefty fine of at least $500 but an automatic felony charge as well 😤😠🤬
Jamie... another RGO. Haha 😘
Lisa show Bert this is your picture
People are idiots at times! WHO does this??? Hefty fines should be involved !
Who would be that stupid 😡
The funny part of this comment section is iv seen engines in Lancaster county drive over charged 5 inch multiple times I have no clue what makes these people think it’s ok to do such things
Friendly reminder? That’s not how it works. It’s freakin illegal in Pennsylvania, and carries a $500 fine with three points. Fine them and then sue to replace the hose. Period.
Start charging them with attempted murder and bet ya they wont run over it anytime soon
People are really that dumb? Wow

***1st Due House Fire with People Trapped***
This morning just after 4am, Progress and Mutual Aid companies were dispatched to the 100-Block of Shell St (400 feet from the station) for smoke in a residence. Engine 32 and Engine 32-1 staffed with live-ins and other members who spent the night arrived quickly as the Police Department reported a working fire and 2 residents trapped on the front porch roof.
Engine 32 secured their own water and deployed their own ladder to rescue the residents from the porch roof while the line crew proceeded to the 1st floor and found the living room on fire. The crews from Engine 32-1 and the Truck completed the searches and deployed a back up line off Engine 32. Truck 34 positioned in the alley and assisted with overhaul and ventilation. The fire was contained to the room of origin.
At the 15 minute mark of the incident, Command marked control and scaled the incident back to units from Susquehanna Twp and Truck 34. ... See MoreSee Less

***Tower Runs Basement Fire in Paxtang***
This evening Dauphin County Communications sent the 40-1 Box (Paxtang Boro) for a report of smoke from the neighbors house.

Engine 40 (Paxtang) arrived and secured a water supply as the 1st due engine and Truck 32 positioned on Side A and assumed the 1st due Truck duties.
Crews made entry and found a moderate smoke condition throughout the house and found a fire in the basement. Units operated on scene for 2 hour before returning. ... See MoreSee Less
