Dumpster Fire at 27 North Main Street

Ambulance 1-8's crew, while performing fire code inspections, came across a dumpster fire to the rear of 27 North Main Street. Crew members placed themselves on scene and requested assistance from Engine 1-2. Workers first started to burn some boxes to the rear of the building which produced a lot of smoke; therefore, they discarded the boxes in the dumpster. The fire was extinguished. The worker was advised of the Borough of Chambersburg's no open burning policy for future reference. Company 1 returned to service.
