On Sunday, QFD responded to 3 calls for service. While clearing call #2, a vehicle vs. buggy accident at Rt. 472 and Sproul Rd. in Colerain Towmship, units were alerted to an automatic fire alarm at Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community. While responding, a 911 call from QPRC indicated a smoke condition and possible fire in an elevator room on the 2nd floor.
Units arrived and found a burned wiring harness that controls a submerged oil pump for one of the elevators. The fire was out, but the volunteers set up fans to remove any remaining smoke. The assignment was held to QFD units only, with Bart Township Fire Company Engine 51-1 standing by in our station while we operated (about 1 hour).
Thanks to Tom Amico for most of the pictures.
