At 0332 hours, Volunteers of the Association were activated by the Indiana County 911 Center for a reported stove fire inside an apartment at 744 Locust Street, Indiana Borough.
Indiana Borough Police responded and arrived on scene to find a first-floor apartment on fire on the south-side of the building. Police Officers from Indiana Borough and IUP began evacuating the multi-tenant apartment complex.
Third Assistant Fire Chief (TAFC) Ron Moreau responded as the Duty Chief along with Fire Chief Scott Schuller, First Assistant Fire Chief Tom Moreau, Ladder 106 from the White Township Station, Ladder 101, Engine 102, and U115 from the Central Station.
While responding, TAFC Moreau was informed that police officers were confirming the fire and evacuating the other apartments. TAFC Moreau requested a full first alarm assignment bringing mutual aid from the Clymer Volunteer Fire Department and the Homer City Volunteer Fire Department.
TAFC Moreau arrived on the scene, initiated command and conducted his 360. L106 was given orders to turn off of Wayne Avenue onto Viola Way and conduct fire suppression.
Chief Schuller arrived on scene and donned his gear to assist the L106 attack crew of three. L101 was ordered to travel Wayne to Locust to Garman and establish a water supply for L106. E102 was asked to bring manpower to L101.
L106 stretched a single pre-connected 1 3/4" attack line while Chief Schuller and Firefighter John Felty entered with apartment with a pressurized water can. The initial crew found the kitchen heavily involved in fire and made an effort to control it with the can.
Firefighters Codey Venanzio and Greg Wharton advanced the L106 handline and quickly extinguished the fire. A primary search was being conducted when Captain Three Lee Thompson provided a thermal imaging camera from L101 to assist in the assessment of extension from the apartment of origin.
No one was found in the apartment after multiple searches and positive pressure ventilation was initiated along with a secondary search of the entire apartment complex.
Two students were displaced by the fire and IUP Police assisted with temporary housing.
IFA and her mutual aid partners remained on scene for about 90 minutes. ... See MoreSee Less
I'm asked all the time if the live-in program at the White Township Station works? I can overwhelmingly say YES! And not one YES, but like YES x 10!!! The program has been well established for years and we continue to improve it. Currently, we have four live-ins. The live-ins can operate the apparatus and respond to nearly every emergency we have over a nine-month period. They see and do it all. At the end of four years, sometimes five, they leave well educated and proud to have made a difference. They are well prepared to head out into the big bad world. Some are teachers, some are in safety, some are nurses, some are paramedic/fire fighters and some are law enforcement. Some end up in places that don't rely on volunteers and their time at the IFA is the end of their firefighting careers. I think that makes their commitment to this community all the more important. From the Chief to the kids at west: Thanks for what you do!!
