At 2337 hours Company 95 was dispatched to 962 W. Philadelphia Avenue for a reported structure fire in a garage behind the residence. Eastern Berks Regional Police discovered a smoke condition in the area while on patrol and investigated the area and found the garage was on fire at the rear of the address
and had BAF&R dispatched as well as alerting the owners of the property. On arrival crews found heavy smoke coming from the structure and flames in the roof area of the workshop. Entry was made and the fire was knocked down quickly. In the garage area was a late model SUV that suffered water and smoke damage. The fire appears to be accidental but a determination will be made by the Colebrookdale Fire Marshal.
BAF&R was assisted by Eastern Berks Fire and Gilbertsville Fire as well as Boyertown Ambulance and Eastern Berks Regional Police.
