At 7:03 pm, QFD was alerted to assist the Refton Community Fire Company on a commercial building fire at Quality Stone on Church Street in Refton. Initial QFD units dispatched were Engine 574, Tanker and Rescue 57. Truck 57, Engine 572, Squad 572 (Fire Police) and Squad 571 were also added onto the call due to first-in units finding a working fire.
QFD units assisted with fire attack, water supply, checking for extension and set up the initial Rapid Intervention Company. The fire was held to the building closest to Church Street (Side A) with the extension being cut off before it could spread into the connected building. Truck 57 was able to position on Side C in a small alley.
Thanks to all QFD members that turned out, and to all of the mutual aid companies that worked together to control and extinguish this year-end fire. Thanks also to Bart Township Fire Company for transferring to our station while we were out. Units all cleared by 11 pm, including the Fire Police.
