Multiple Alarm Structure Fire in Old Forge Borough


 Greenwood crews started off just after 5AM this morning with a RIT assignment into Duryea for a single family dwelling which was well involved upon the arrival of the first due companies. Crews stood as the FAST truck and later were reassigned to open up hidden fire on the 2nd floor. Crews operated for over 1 1/2 hours. After a very short quite period back at the station the same crews were sent into Old Forge Borough for a very large duplex with an attached warehouse type addition approx 40' x 60'. First arriving crews found very heavy fire in the warehouse section of the building and with quite a bit of aggressive work the fire condition was held to the 1st story attachment with some limited extension into the 2 1/2 story double block. Crews operated for 4 hours until clearing. We are very proud to be part of one of the best multi-agency operations in the area. We are also very grateful for the support we obtained from our FRIENDS from many other agencies from both Lackawanna & Luzerne Counties.
