Upon responding they were advised of several calls with conflicting locations and size of the building, 2502 was first on location and reported a well involved shed extending to the home and requested a 2nd alarm on arrival. Crews from Berks County were also responding to the area for the possibility of the fire in there area when the location was determined they rerouted to Lehigh County to assist at the scene.
