Adams County Pennsylvania Box 1-8-30 was struck Tuesday evening 3/24/15 at 19:26 hours for a reported house fire on Flickinger Road in Straban Township just off the Lincoln Highway (U.S. Route 30). The Adams County 911 Communications Center advised Gettysburg Fire Chief Hurshel Shank (Chief 1) they were receiving multiple calls for a well involved garage fire.

First due company, the Gettysburg Volunteer Fire Department arrived confirming the dispatch of a fully-involved garage fire attached to a two-story, single-family dwelling. A working dispatch was requested, bringing additional resources for R.I.T., plus tankers and an additional truck company.

A Blitzfire® nozzle was deployed to the garage while the crew from Engine 1-2 advanced a hand line to the alpha side of the house, forced entry, and made a search for occupants as well as beginning fire attack for the fire that was now extending into the living area. Heavy fire was found in the basement as well as the top floor of the house.

Several hand lines were deployed throughout all sides of  the burning structure. The search proved negative for residents, however two family cats were found deceased. The fire was brought under control in about one hour with no injuries to firefighters. Extensive overhaul was needed.

Chief 1 along with the Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshal returned the following morning to investigate the origin and cause. The fire, which originated in the garage, was ruled accidental. All garage contents were destroyed including a car.
