Emmaus 2nd Alarm Fire Takes Two Homes
In the early News Years Eve morning Emmaus Fire is Dispatched to the 500 Blk of Main St for the reported Dwelling fire, While responding they are advised of two calls reporting the fire and that Police was on location confirming a working fire. 7 Command arrives on location and reports two homes fully involved and immediately strikes a 2nd alarm, crews go right into a defensive mode with heaviest water lines and master streams from all sides. As the fight continues tankers are brought in to assist with a water supply due to the large amount of water being thrown at the structures. Crews had the upper hand in about an hour or so but remained on location for an extended period of time for mop up and overhaul..
