Station 95 was dispatched to 27 S Franklin Street around 12:20 pm on 5/2/2018 for a reported kitchen fire. Crews found a small fire on top of the stove and quickly removed the burning items and made sure there was no active fire in the structure and then ventilated the Apartment to get all the smoke out of the building. The fire appeared to be accidental due to items stored on top of the
stove and a burner was activated igniting those items.
Crews were assisted by Eastern Berks Fire Co., Boyertown Ambulance and Gilbertsville Fire Co., Thanks to all that assisted.
