Garden Spot Fire Rescue (GSFR39) shared an album: 3 Alarm Fire at Gap Weis - 11/24/2019.
2 weeks ago
Station 42 (Gap) was dispatched to the Weis Market around 1:30 for a fire alarm activation. Assistant 42 arrived to find heavy smoke showing from the rear corner of the building and requested the assignment be upgraded and asked for the 2nd alarm right away.
Truck 39 was sent as part of the assignment and took a position on the rear of the building to begin roof operations with several other truck companies. Due to the unknown amount and exact location of the fire and it’s progression along the back of the building, crews were pulled from roof operations for a time so aerial master streams could be utilized.
Crews re entered the structure to assess and found the bulk of the fire was knocked and it appeared to be isolated to the storage area and roof of the building. Truck companies went back to work on the roof and interior crews began opening up from the interior and putting lines in place for hot spots and hidden fire.
Tanker 39 and Engine 39-2 were both added to the assignment as additional units were requested to the scene as it eventually went to a 3rd alarm.A 3 alarm fire struck the Gap Weis early Sunday morning.
Shortly at 1:00 am Gap Fire Company was dispatched to an automatic alarm at the grocery store. Crews arrived to find a working fire and immediately upgraded to a 1st & 2nd alarm dispatch.
The fire eventually went to a 3rd alarm.
Firefighters from Lancaster & Chester Counties battled the deep seated blaze.
Over 40 pieces of fire apparatus were called to the scene.
A State Police Fire Marshal was called into the scene to determine a cause. No cause has been reported as of Sunday morning.
Crews remain on the scene almost 7 hours after the initial call came in. ... See MoreSee Less
