Electrical Fire

Shortly after crews arrived back to the station from the house fire on Etter Road, the Tower was dispatched to 225 Sollenberger Road for an electrical fire in a daycare. Tower pulled in directly after the first arriving engine and assisted with investigation. Crews found an electrical cord that shorted out and arced causing a slight smoke condition. Power was secured, and crews were released in around 20 minutes.
