First Due Trailer Fire
August 24, 2020

At 1:18PM, Engine 27-1 and Engine 59 (Silverdale) were dispatched for an automobile fire on Keystone Drive in Hilltown Township. While enroute, Chief 27 was advised there was smoke coming from a moving trailer in the parking lot of a business. Engine 27-1 went on scene and pulled a 1¾" line to start extinguishing the fire while Engine 59 staged at the hydrant. Engine 59 then laid into Engine 27-1 and supplied them with water. The assignment was upgraded to an outbuilding fire, adding Montgomery Co. Ladder 75 (Telford). Engine 74 (Souderton) also responded to provide additional manpower. Crews worked together to extinguish the fire, and remove the contents from the front of the trailer.
