At 1923 hours on Saturday 9/12/2020 Company 95 was dispatched to 891 Unger Lane for a barn fire. A large smoke header could be seen for miles and on arrival crews found a box truck and trailer engulfed in flames as well as part of the building and a large area in front of the building. Crews worked to make entry into the building to push the fire back out toward the trailer while dealing with several explosions from stored fuel and other flammable containers.
The fire was quickly controlled but hours of overhaul to handle hot spots under the truck and trailer kept firefighters busy late into the night.
Thanks to Eastern Berks Regional Police, Eastern Berks Fire, Gilbertsville Fire and Earl Fire Companies for all of their help.
While battling this fire Company 95 was dispatched to an automatic fire alarm at the new Spatz Museum and thanks to New Hanover Fire for covering this call.
