May 17, 2008

Companies 27, 26, 28, Truck 22, and Northumberland Engine 65 were dispatched to Reed's Inn at 543 East Market Street in Gratz for a reported structure fire. A caller reported that he lived on the second floor, above the restaurant, and his place was filling up with smoke. Truck 22 responded with a crew of seven, set up on side A, and the crew went to the first floor porch roof to cut a vent hole. This was followed with two additional vent holes cut in the roof above the bar on the D side of the structure. Heavy smoke was pouring from the building. The origin appeared to be in the area near the bar, with damage estimates above $300,000.00. The truck crew remained on the scene setting up negative pressure fans on the second floor and assisting with other ventilation, until released by command.
