FATAL FIRE IN WOMELSDORF
Mon, Mar 23rd, 2020 6:02:00 pm This morning at 0425 hours the WVFC along with mutual aid companies from Marion, Robesonia, Newmanstown, Myerstown and Richland along with EMS were dispatched to 71 Westview Terrace in the borough for a house fire with entrapment.

Chief 47 arrived on scene with heavy fire showing from a single story home. Engine 47 arrived on scene laying in from a nearby hydrant establishing a water supply and stretched several hand lines along with Engine 52 to begin suppression.

Upon arrival Ladder 47's crew split with search and roof ventilation. During their primary search of the home a deceased occupant was located.

Volunteers from our mutual aid companies assisted the WVFC with extinguishment and overhaul. During operations personnel had to deal with exploding ammunition and compromised floors. Fortunately there were no injuries to any volunteers. Even though two neighboring homes suffered some heat damage, personnel were able to prevent the fire from spreading which would have resulted in further damage.

The WVFC expresses our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. The incident is under investigation by the PA State Police Fire Marshal.

We'd also like to thank Mission BBQ of Wyomissing for dropping off lunch for our volunteers after the incident. The WVFC appreciates your support!
