Structure Fire Assist To Vernon Central Hose Company: Run #51

On Friday February 28, 2014, the Vernon Township Volunteer Fire Department was called to assist Vernon Central Hose Company units with a working garage fire at 5:50pm. Engine 27-2 and Rescue Engine 27-1 responded to the scene along with units from Vernon Central, Conneaut Lake Park, Summit, Hayfield Central, and West Mead #2. While enroute, units were advised of the possible entrapment of a victim. Thankfully this was later ruled to be untrue and that everyone had made it out of the structure.  Upon arrival of 27-2, the garage was full involved. Department 27 was back in service at 9:31pm. The fire rekindled at 12:59am on Saturday March 1, 2014. Once again crews from both Vernon Central and Vernon Township were called to the scene and were returned to service at 2:05am.Snapshot 1 (3-4-2014 7-37 PM)
