2nd Alarm Fire in the Greenwood Section

Thursday, June 15, 2017  Two minutes to midnight an alarm was transmitted for a multi unit apartment dwelling fire in the 3300 blk of Cedar Ave in Moosic. Penn Med 15 was first arriving confirming the working fire which activated the (SRN) Special Response Narrative filling out the balance of the 1st alarm. Initial crews were faced with heavy fire conditions on the 2nd division and in the common attic space. Due to the advanced fire conditions a 2nd alarm was transmitted as multiple lines were put into operation. All searches proved negative and the bulk of the fire was knocked down within 30 minutes. Crews spent nearly 2 hours overhauling the second floor and attic space. There were no injuries reported. Red Cross is assisting the 5 displaced occupants and a PSP Fire Marshall is due to be at the scene in the morning. All crews did an outstanding job stopping the forward progress of this fire! Additional photos of the incident are in the story below.

   


 

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.

Josh D. Felter, former Moosic Resident, took on the task of compiling Greenwood Fire History

 Joshua Felter, a Riverside High School graduate & former Moosic Borough Resident, is always researching his communities history. He can frequently be found at The Lackawanna County Historical Society researching old records of Moosic and his ancestry along with many other Moosic ancestry lines. 

Josh's ability to dig up the history on Moosic doesn't stop at old newspaper articles, he frequently finds the outcomes of the articles he finds, and posts them on his History & Genealogy Facebook page to share with his community.

The articles attached to this story were found by Josh and uncover Greenwood/Moosic Fire History dating back as far as the 1800's.
