By Fire Chief Mike McWilliams
January 1, 2017

As many were celebrating the New Year, the Westwood Fire Company was summoned for a house fire in Valley Township. The dispatch went out around 1730 for the house on fire in the 400 block of Brickus Circle in Valley Township.

Chief McWilliams and Sadsburyville Chief Grossman arrived simultaneously to find no smoke or fire showing from the exterior of the address. Chief McWilliams established Brickus Circle Command and Chief Grossman assumed operations.

Arriving 9 minutes after the time of dispatch with a crew of 5, Engine 31-1 went interior to investigate a odor of smoke. Firefighters used thermal imaging cameras to search for the source of odor and came back with negative results.

Engine 44-5 arrived next and prepared to supply water to Engine 31-1 if needed, while manpower joined the manpower pool. Additional units from Sadsburyville and Wagontown proceeded in and held their crews.

It was determined the incident was traced back to a furnace malfunction. Westwood crews also monitored for Carbon Monoxide. The assignment was available within 30 minutes of being dispatched.

Units: Engine 44-5, Ambulance 44-1, Chief 44
 
Mutual Aid: Engine 31-1, Engine 31-2, Rescue 35
