Fully Involved barn fire in Bart Township
Thu, Jul 7th, 2016 3:18:00 am - This morning at 3:18 am, Bart Twp. Fire Co and mutual aid companies were dispatched to 314 Lamparter Rd in Bart Twp for a barn fire. Deputy 51 (LeFevre) went enroute and was advised by LCWC of 1 call reporting a diesel shed on fire and that the barn was "big". Moments later, Captain 51-2 (L. Lucarino) arrived and confirmed a working fire and requested the working fire dispatch. Deputy 51 arrived soon after reporting a large dairy barn "well off" and requested the Tanker Task Force be dispatched as well. First in units from 51 and 57 (Quarryville) were faced with intense radiant heat and multiple exposures (other buildings) within a short distance from the fire building. Crews went to work protecting and saving all of the exposure buildings. Truck 57 set up and operated the elevated master stream. As other mutual aid arrived, they were sent to the staging area to await assignments and all tankers went to water supply operations. Rescue 42 (Gap) set up as the RIT during the fire suppression efforts. Engine 57-2 filled tankers off the hydrant on Mt. Pleasant Rd and Chester Engine 27-1 (Cochranville) set up a second fill site at Gibbles Hill Rd and Heyberger Rd. These two engines filled roughly 40 tanker loads of water for a total of 100,000 plus gallons of water. The rehab unit from Station 43 (Gordonville) was requested to the scene to assist the QRS crew with rehab due to the hot and humid weather. These personnel worked to get all firefighters rested and rehydrated. Bob Work excavating was called to assist with their trackhoe and skid loader to get the tin and hay removed from the barn.
The last units cleared the scene at 10 am.
Thank you to all the mutual aid units that assisted on this call. Everyone did an awesome job. Most firefighters then reported to their full time jobs after returning. Thank you to all Station 51 members who responded to the call. 51 Pride was strong today !!
