Pre-Arrival: Auto Repair Shop Fire

Lehigh County

At 11:51AM Tuesday, Lehigh County Fire Radio transmitted the box for a structural fire at 3220 Mauch Chunk Road in North Whitehall Township.

Additional information provided to Chief 16 from the fire dispatcher was one caller reporting smoke from the building. 

When Chief 16 arrived, he found a 1-story auto repair shop with fire and smoke pushing from the building and struck out the second alarm. 

Someone backed a pick-up truck to the overhead doors in the rear and ran inside to save the tool chest. They chained it and used the pick-up to pull it out of the garage before it engulfed in flames. 

Volunteers from North Whitehall, Whitehall, South Whitehall and Catasauqua assisted at the fire.
