The Indiana Fire Association depends heavily on local hydrants to conduct are suppression operations. But that's not to say that we don't know how to go back to basics!
Tonight's engineers practice consisted of drafting from a pond and supplying various appliances and the aerial. The pond is always a fun time to stretch our legs and knock the cob webs off.
We appreciate all the volunteers that came out and enjoyed a great evening. Special thanks to Third Assistant Fire Ron Moreau for the pictures!! ... See MoreSee Less

Volunteers of the Association responded with the Clymer Volunteer Fire Department and the Homer City Volunteer Fire Department for a residential structure fire in the 700 block of Wayne Avenue near Sheetz at the point in Indiana Borough.
Fire Chief Scott Schuller responded as the officer-in-charge (OIC) along with First Assistant Fire Chief Thomas Moreau, Ladder 101, Engine 102, Rescue 105 and Utility 115 from the Central Station and Ladder 106, Engine 108 and Utility 116 from the White Township Station and various mutual aid apparatus from Clymer and Homer City.
Sergeant Michael Raglani, Sergeant Jeffrey Atherton and Patrolman First Class Jenny Lenhart of the Indiana Borough Police Department arrived on scene and found fire coming from the "B" side the structure on Division 2.
Officers quickly assessed the structure and interviewed neighbors to determine that no tenants lived inside.
Chief Schuller communicated with Officers on scene who confirmed a "working" fire and no known tenants.
Upon arrival, Chief Schuller parked on South Street and established command at the front of the structure.
L106 came Maple Street to Wayne Avenue and was instructed to establish a water supply on the hydrant near Locust Street.
L101 came Philadelphia to Sixth Street to Wayne Avenue and was instructed to establish a water supply on the hydrant near Carpenter Avenue.
Chief Schuller exited command and placed both ladders prior to ordering the use of elevated master streams.
L106 was placed at the "CD" corner and quickly established a single 1 3/4 inch hand line for "C" side exposure control. Fire Fighter Molly Kolesar gets a big shout out for protecting the exposure by herself until help arrived to allow the remaining crew to conduct search and rescue and the engineer began aerial operations.
L101 was placed on the "AB" corner and Engineer began aerial operations as the crew conducted a primary search and then established a blitz fire on the "A" side.
Engine 102, Engine 108, Rescue 105 and Utilities 115/116 brought additional manpower to supplement our operations.
Homer City VFD established a water supply from a hydrant on Park Place and was then placed at the "BC" corner for fire suppression.
Clymer VFD provided additional manpower and the ability to replenish air cylinders with breathing air.
During our entire operation Fire Fighter rehabilitation was conducted by Citizens Ambulance Service.
Great job by everyone involved. I can't say enough good things about mutual aid. Great people who always have our backs. No injuries were reported.
Fire is under investigation by PSP Fire Marshal. ... See MoreSee Less
We drove by that this morning, and wonder if the fire started in the attic? Glad that no one got hurt.
Way to be.
Good Job Molly!
Proud of you Molly Kolesar!
Go Molly Kolesar !!! 💕
