May 24, 2018

At 12:43am, TVFD was dispatched to an RV fire on Route 176 in Caernarvon Berks. Multiple conflicting reports to Berks County 911 placed the incident in the area of both Route 176 and Route 10. Chief 69 (Brooks) arrived confirming the location to be Route 10 in the area of the turnpike interchange, with a fully involved semi-truck RV. Additional tankers, an engine for manpower, and EMS were also requested to the scene by command. Station 34 (Churchtown FC) for an engine and tanker, Station 24 (Geigertown FC) for a tanker, and Ambulance 189 were dispatched to assist. Engine 69-5 and 69-1's crew arrived deploying multiple handlines for suppression efforts, and protecting a race car trailer that was detached prior to fire units arriving. Tanker 34 arrived and provided water supply, while Engine 34's crew assisted with suppression. EMS stoodby providing medical support, while fire police closed the roadway and detoured traffic around the incident. Once the bulk of the fire was knocked down, Station 24's tanker was cancelled by command. After extensive overhaul, the scene was turned over to Caernarvon PD and Bressler's towing.

Final units cleared at 02:59am.

Special thanks to our mutual aid companies for their assistance!
