Possible Structure Fire Cut Short in Lower Moosic

  As Station 98 was pulling out of the garage for training night the tones dropped for Greenwood  & first alarm companies to respond to Lower Moosic for a possible structure fire. 

Chief 98 arrived on scene reporting a possible stove fire in the rear of the evacuated single family dwelling, Engine 98 held the first due engine duty & advanced a 200' 2'' cross-lay and entered through the front door. Luckily, the fast acting neighbor extinguished the fire with a home fire extinguisher. 

Engine 98 removed the electric stove from the home while Rescue 98 checked for extension & Ladder 226 vented the residence and checked division 2 for extension. 

All crews were back in service within 45 minutes.
