As units responded the size of the incident was found to be large and additional resources were requested and added to the response. Multiple brush units from Dauphin, Schuylkill, Northumberland, Perry and Cumberland Counties soon joined the event. Gratz Engine 27 was dispatched and later requested to establish a tanker fill site in Lykens Borough at Main and Arlington Streets at the hydrant, which was approximate 2 miles from the fires location.
