Just after 1000 hours Company 95 was dispatched for Collapse 95 to respond to 2610 Fairview Avenue in Mt Penn for a large tree into a house with heavy structural damage.
Crews arrived on scene and consulted with Officers from Mt Penn Fire and the Owner and a plan was developed to support the roof in the area where the tree crushed the house so the tree can be removed without further damage to the house. Crews worked with Mt Penn and Exeter Firefighters to get materials in the house and construct a support wall on the top floor over the lower bearing wall to support the damaged roof structure.
The local Codes Officer arrived on scene and he was taken inside to observe the damage and what our crew was doing to stabilize the structure.
Thanks to all that helped.
