At 07:12 Allentown transmitted box 2653 for 14th and Highland on a report of a house fire for 1032 North 14th Street sending Engines 4, 9, 10, 6 (F.A.S.T.), Truck 2, Battalion 43 (Wehr) and FM 45.

Car 43 arrives and signals a working fire in a garage of a 1-story private dwelling. Engine 4 stretches in on the garage and quickly darkens down the bulk of the fire. Engine 9 ties into the hydrant at 14th and Highland and brings water to Engine 4. Meanwhile, Truck 2 sets-up behind Engine 4 and goes to the roof to cut a ventilation hole.

The fire extended into the attic of the dwelling and ran the roof line. Engine 10 arrived and stretched a line off of 4 and went inside to stop the fire spread.

Battalion Chief Wehr requested one additional Engine and the Air Unit 1. Engine 14 was assigned the additional Engine above the 1st alarm.

Air 1 filled approximately 22 air cylinders on scene. A total of 3 hand lines were in operation for this fire. Fire watch lasted throughout most of the day. No injuries were reported.
