On Monday at shortly after 4PM units from Fairview Township were alerted for a reported house on fire in the 500 block of Bridge St in New Cumberland Borough. Rescue 68 (Lt Freistat) was out in seconds with a crew of 5. Chief 10 arrived to find a well involved fire on the 2nd floor of a 2 story multi-family dwelling that doubled as a business on the first floor. Rescue 68 arrived and proceeded to attack the fire from the front yard due to heavy fire conditions. Once the fire was darkened downed crews then assisted interior crews with further fire attack. Additional crews from Company 68 arrived and assisted with overhaul and hot spots. Chief 68 assisted Chief 10 with Command and Operations. Crews remained on scene for approximately 3 more hours doing overhaul and clean up.
