At 16:20 Saturday afternoon, South Whitehall Firefighters responded to 1604 N. 26th Street (26th & Russell) for a house fire with entrapment. Command quickly went on location and upgraded the box to a working fire and added a F.A.S.T. company from Whitehall to the box.
Members stretched hand lines to the interior and quickly darkened down the fire. Command had the 2nd alarm struck that brought two more engines to the scene.
Three members put Truck 3 (3-31) in-service and went to the roof to cut a vent hole in the roof.
The lady that was reported to be trapped was out of the house by the time the fire department arrived. She was being evaluated by Cetronia Paramedics.
Allentown Engine 10 moved to the Woodlawn Station to cover calls in the township.
