Just after 3 pm Monday, QFD was alerted to assist the Rawlinsville Fire Company on a garage fire in the 600 block of Lancaster Pike in Providence Township. 58 units were originally dispatched for a vehicle fire, but additional calls stated the garage was also on fire. Engine 581 arrived with a well involved 20’X20′ garage with exposure to a house and a large woods fire.
QFD units arrived and assisted with the main building fire and also the approximate 1 acre woods fire. Engine 574 stretched one line while the Tanker supplied Willow Street Engine 502. The remainder of the 57 crews assisted with overhaul etc. QFD Fire Police assisted with the large and busy detour as the major North/South Rt. 272 was closed for several hours. They definitely had their hands full.
