WORKING STRUCTURE FIRE AT THE BLAKESLEE INN

Wednesday, February 3, 2016   Lake Harmony Fire Company was dispatched around 8:30 AM to assist Monroe County Station 41 on a confirmed structure fire at the Blakeslee Inn on route 940. Ladder 17 arrived on scene with Tobyhanna's Ladder truck who took side "A", while Ladder 17 was instructed to take side "C". Ladder 17 laddered the roof and began to ventilate the rear area of the roof near the bulk of the fire. Shortly after that, they were ordered to begin ladder pipe operations. The ladder was supplied by a 5" line from station 41's engine, who was drafting from two porta tanks, as well as a second 5" line from West End of Broadheadsville. The ladder had the ladder pipe in service as well as the blitz fire gun and two hand lines. Tanker 17 hauled over a dozen loads of water during the heat of the fire. One firefighter from Lake Harmony was transported to the hospital for an eye injury, and was released within several hours. Thanks go out to the Weathery Fire Company for standing by in our station all day.
