After responding to four calls on Christmas Eve, QFD Volunteers were able to have a call-free Christmas Day to be able to spend time with family and friends until just before midnight, when Tanker 57 was alerted as an add-on to the first alarm assignment for a working building fire at 242 Marticville Road in Pequea Township assisting the West Willow Fire Company. Just after the Tanker’s response, the 2nd alarm was requested, sending Truck 57 with 6 Volunteers to the scene.
On arrival, Tanker 57 assisted in the water supply and Truck 57 set up on the “A / B” corner. Crews assisted inside and outside with fire control and overhaul.
This building was involved in another fire several years ago.
QFD members were in service 3.5 hours, returning by 3:30 am.
