Around 6:00 pm Progress and mutual aid companies were dispatched to the 3500 block of Elmerton Ave for the house fire. Lt 32 (McCann) was in the area and arrived to find a fully involved house. Crews arrived and started an interior attack but were pulled out due to structural issues. Crews went into defensive operations and extinguished the fire quickly.

Today we take a moment to remember the men who lost their lives last week in Boston as they are laid to rest. A few live ins from Progress are currently in Boston to honor these men.

Late this evening Harrisburg City units were sent to the 200-block of Hummel Street for a house fire. Units arrived with fire in a 3 story Row and command requested the 1st alarm and added Truck 32 as Harrisburg Units made an aggressive attack to keep the fire from extending down the block. The Truck company arrived and placed multiple ladders and assisted with fire suppression and overhaul. The Truck operated for approx. 3 hours before returning.

For the 2nd Time in 24 Hours the Squad Company (Engine 32-1) was back to work in the 49 box area. The Squad crew assumed the RIT and staged on Side Charlie and assisted with ladders. Units were dispatched for a transformer fire which extended into the building and held a defensive position until all utilities could be secured. Good work again by all units on the scene.
While operating on this box, the Tower took in a fire alarm with an additional crew in the 49 box.
