3rd Fire in 30 Hours

Truck, Rescue, and Asst. Head to Boswell

Around 1am, the RTFD was once again alerted to a reported house fire, this time in the 605 (Boswell) box area. Truck 3-1 (Lt. Kap), Rescue 3-1 (Capt. Guizio), and Asst. Shaffer all responded. Truck 3-1’s crew assisted the Engine Companies from 605 with an aggressive interior attack on the fire in the ceiling, while Rescue 3-1 crew assumed RIT and performed Truck Co functions. Propane tanks on the C side of the structure fed the fire, but were held in check by exterior crews as interior crews attacked the fire. Once the bulk of the fire was knocked down, RTFD crews assisted with overhaul and ventilation. This fire makes 3 in 30 hours for the RTFD: Portage Sunday Night, Windber Monday Afternoon, and Boswell Early Tuesday Morning.
