On 11/23 at 5:04 PM, the Shrewsbury Volunteers were dispatched to Bohr Court in Shrewsbury Township, for a reported house on fire. Engine 59 (Glen Rock) arrived to find a 2 story house fully involved with fire. Engine 61-1 was the second arriving Engine and supplied Engine 59 with water from a nearby pond.
Due to the narrow drive and hoses in the lane, all arriving crews had to hike up a steep hill to reach the scene. The crew from 61 was split, half to help with the house and the other half went into the woods to extinguish two brush fires that were a result of the house fire.
One person was transported to the hospital by Ambulance 59, no firefighters were injured.
Station 61 responded with Engine 61-1, Rescue 61, and Brush 61. Jefferson Fire Company stood-by in Shrewsbury to handle any additional calls.
All Shrewsbury units returned to quarters at 9 PM.
