Chicken house fire
Fri, Jun 5th, 2020 12:45:00 pm the WVFC was finishing up the Conrad Weiser Senior Parade at the West Elementary School we were dispatched at 1946 hours to assist the Strausstown Fire Co with a chicken house fire at 514 Bricker Rd in Upper Tulpehocken Twp.
After a full company response Ladder 47 set up for master stream operations for several hours while Tanker 47 assisted in the tanker shuttle with water supply. Manpower from Engine and Attack 47 assisted as well.
Unfortunately over 64,000 chicks perished. The company operated for about 4 hours.
Thanks to Tower 31 from the Keystone Fire Co. of Myerstown for transferring to our firehouse to provide coverage for our area.
