On Sunday, February 5th, UAFD was called out for a total of five calls, starting with a sprinkler malfunction, then a gas leak outside, a vehicle accident that was a rollover, a chimney fire, and finally a shed fire in Fairview Township. Members were on station most of the day still cleaning up from the Motel 6 fire on Friday evening and the UAFD Banquet on Saturday night.

Motel 6 Fire
Friday evening, February 3rd, UAFD and surrounding mutual add departments were alerted for a mobile home fire on Cumberland Parkway. While units were responding, the incident was upgraded to a building fire as the mobile home fire had spread to the adjacent motel. Assistant Chief went on scene with a working fire and assumed command, asking for second alarm. Truck companies on scene were able to affect a “trench cut” in the roof at the edge of the fire spread to save the rest of the motel. Units remained on scene for about six hours.
Thanks to all our mutual aid companies, EMS, Upper Allen Police, Upper Allen Public Works, and all the transfer companies covering for all the departments involved.
