At roughly 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, November 21st, Tanker 42 and Engine 42 were dispatched to assist Upper Frederick Station 87 with a garage fire in the 2900 Block of Hauck Road in Upper Frederick Township. The Engine and Tanker responded along with units from Upper Frederick, New Hanover, Lower Frederick, Schwenksville and Upper Salford. Chief 52 of Lower Frederick arrived on location and reported a working fire in a detached garage. He ordered the first engine in to protect the home. Engine 42 arrived first in, but with some mechanical difficulties was not able to begin the initial fire attack. Engine 73 from Schwenksville quickly pulled in behind Engine 42, Captain 42 (Campfield) pulled a line from Engine 73 and requested the use of their CAFS (Compressed Air Foam System) to protect the exposure. Once a good coating of foam was applied to the home, the line was turned on the garage to begin knocking down the bulk of the fire. Tanker 42, driven by L. Roeder, supplied Engine 73. Once empty, Tanker 42 refilled and was able to return due to the quick knock down of the fire. Units on scene assisted with overhaul and began to make themselves available.
Many other units were dispatched to the scene, mainly tankers. With it being in Upper Fredericks Local, we are unsure of all the companies that responded.
