Garden Spot Fire Rescue (GSFR39)

Garden Spot Fire Rescue provides fire and rescue services in the ELANCO area.

Units from GSFR were dispatched to a reported building collapse in New Holland Borough on Sunday evening.

Units arrived to find a large section of a brick veneer wall had collapsed into the street. Luckily there were no injuries. Crews checked the structure and related utilities before turning the incident over to the property management.

W. Franklin St. will remain closed until contractors can make the needed repairs.*UPDATE* All CrossNet Programs are operating on our regular schedule today. We will keep you updated as more information comes.

Thank you to Garden Spot Fire Rescue (GSFR39) for quickly responding to a situation at CrossNet this evening!

The facade of our warehouse property came down this evening. Praise God no one was hurt! We will be working on cleaning up this week.

Please note the structure of the building remains intact, however a part of the brick facade has come down.

A portion of Franklin Street will be closed until cleaned up completely.

Thank you for your support and continued partnership!

Again, we express our gratitude to Garden Spot Fire Rescue for their prompt response and assistance!

At 6:30pm, the 1st alarm assignment was dispatched to 443 W. Main St. in New Holland Borough for a reported house on fire. Dispatch advised command officers upon response of “multiple calls reporting a house on fire.”

Capt. 39-1 and Deputy 39 arrived to find a well involved porch fire extending up the side of a duplex with at least one civilian injury. Additional EMS units were requested immediately.

A 2nd alarm was struck a few seconds later to bring additional resources to the scene due to the proximity of the involved structure to a neighboring building.

Truck 39 and Engine 39-2 arrived simultaneously. Truck 39 began a search of the fire building as Engine 39-2 was placing a line in service to darken down a bulk of the exterior fire. During this time, 1st floor windows failed and the front room of the home became consumed by fire, 2 members from Truck 39 sustained burn injuries prior to exiting through a window and the front door. Both firefighters were transported, treated and released from the hospital.

Units from GSFR and surrounding mutual aid agencies operated on the scene until 10:30pm for overhaul and mop up.

The cause is under investigation.

Thank you to all of our mutual aid departments for the assistance this evening and for checking in on our members.

Our thoughts are with the affected and the GSFR personnel.

I was driving near this just as some of the first responders were arriving. I’ve never actually seen a fire other than pictures and video. It was very disturbing to see. I have a new found appreciation for our first responders who actually run into a fire like this. I would have ran the other way! I saw a video of 2 of the firemen running out with smoke coming off of their gear and other firemen hosing them off. I’m guessing these are the 2 that were injured. How does that even happen? Do they need new updated equipment? What can we do to help make sure this never happens again?

That’s so scarey I drove by yesterday and went down the road where new holland ford was and I watched from there the heat was crazy u felt from the fire and fireworks were going off I also seen people fighting and someone took off in a white convertible white with looked to me the American flag with like gold stars decal, and never seen that car again took the fire department awhile to get there I sat there for 15 mins no one was there and then my bf and son went up let me remind u I live 10 mins from that fire and when my bf went up that’s when the fire company’s started showing up. The house I knew when I seen flames it was gonna be a goner.
