Reported House Fire

A box alarm at 9:42 p.m. sent units to 151 South Fourth Street, in the Borough, for a reported house on fire. Ambulance 1-8 arrived shortly after dispatch to find trash and a fence on fire with exposure issues. Engine 1-4 arrived and crews quickly put a line on the fire preventing it from spreading to the interior of the house. Siding on the house melted, and a part of the fence was partially burned. Crews remained on scene for around 30 minutes.
