On 20 November, 2017 around 21:00, units from Co. 39 and 45 were alerted for a garage fire in the 800 block of Pheasant Dr. Upon response of chief 39 (McKillip Jr) advised county that it was an attached garage and had extended into the home already. The box was then upgraded to a 2nd alarm. Crews made quick work of the fire via wagon pipe and 2 hand lines. All occupants were out of the home and were uninjured. The officers and members of North Middleton Fire Co. send our thoughts and prayers to the family. We don’t like seeing this especially during the holiday season. Great work done by all departments together. A special shout out to Hampden Township Volunteer FD. for covering the township while crews operated on scene and assisting with clean up when crews returned. Units on scene were from Co.39, 45, 41, 38, 36, 34 and 33. Photos are courtesy of John Sheaffer.
