At 0400 the Pumper Tanker was alerted to the 100 block of Lower Valley Road in Sadsbury Township, Lancaster County for a barn reported to be fully involved in flames. Engine 44-5 was part of the 2nd alarm assignment along with the Cochranville Fire Company and several other Lancaster County Fire Companies to provide additional manpower and water to the scene.

Engine 44-5 cleared the scene just prior to 0600 and returned to quarters after refueling.
