Electrical Fire In the Boro
Around 17:00 on October 2 Station 9 was dispatched for a possible structure fire in the 200 block of Riverside Dr.  With limited manpower signing on the air Chief 9 had the 2nd alarm units placed on stand by.

Engine, Rescue, and Tanker 9 all responded.  Engine 9 took the numbers while the Rescue stood by at the hydrant at the corner of Reynolds & Riverside.  Tanker 9 stood by on Riverside Dr near Jackson St.  Crews found an electrical panel box on fire in the basement.  The fire was extinguished with a dry chem fire extinguisher.  Crews checked the rest of the house with the thermal imaging cameras, and then ventilated the basement with a positive pressure ventilation fan.

PPL was contacted due to the damage of the box with the potential of live power still coming in.  Some homes in the area lost power due to the fire.  Units operated on scene for approx. one hour.

WLF Rig Returns
Saved from the potential demise in a scrap yard, the Ward La France that was originally owned by Factoryville Fire Company has returned!

Child spots fire, avoids disaster
4-14-15: Station 9 was dispatched for a structure fire, porch on fire on College Ave. Engine 9 arrived with Tanker 9 right behind to find a grill and propane tank on fire extending to the porch. The fire was quickly extinguished before it could extend to the rest of the porch and the house.

While crews cleaned up on scene the Lackawanna Trail Elementary Principal stopped by and advised us that a first grade student had spotted the fire and alerted his teacher to call 911.

Once the scene was clear Engine 9 went to the school and Assistant Chief Stanton met with the student. First grader Grady June was congratulated and thanked for his heroics. He was shown the fire engine and got his picture taken with the Assistant Chief.

 This goes to show that our yearly fire prevention training at the school works and works well. Showing the children how to recognize and what to do in emergency situations can be a major factor and it showed today. Again thank you Grady June, you did a fantastic job!
