At 0146 firefighters were dispatched to the unit block of Youngsburg Road in East Fallowfield Township for an outbuilding fire. An outbuilding usually consists of a shed or storage area detached from a main structure on a property. Calls to 911 indicated the fire to be a working alarm.
Arriving within minutes Deputy Chief Scott reported a one story approximately 20'x30' wood shop on fire and recommended two additional tankers due to the fire load inside of the building.
Firefighters spent several hours dowsing the flames and overhauling the structure to ensure the fire would not rekindle. The Chester County Fire Marahall's office responded to investigate the cause of the fire. Firefighters from Modena, Westwood, Coatesville, Sadsburyville, Keystone Valley, Cochranville and Po-Mar-Lin answered the call.
