At the same time, units from Souderton and Telford were dispatched for the same incident through Montgomery County. Chief and Deputy 27 arrived to confirm the report and Engine 27 worked with Rescue 74 from Souderton to extinguish the blaze. Manpower from Utility 27, Engine 74-1, and Squad 75 assisted with various functions.

At the request of the tow truck driver, Engine 27 returned to the scene to extinguish two small hot spots before the vehicle was loaded on the flatbed.
