At 1620 hrs crews from 295 and 296 were alerted for a report of a vehicle on fire inside of a Storage building along Thompson Run Road in District 295. 295 Chief arrived on scene within minutes taking the Incident Command finding a single story commercial structure housing eight (8) separate storage units. Command reported a moderate smoke condition coming from the structure and a single unit door open showing a car with a fully involved engine compartment fire. Command requested the first alarm be filled bringing in the RIT, Fire Marshall, and Utilities. 295 Engine arrived shortly after and crews made quick work of the fire with a knock down time of under 5 minutes. Crews forced entry into the remaining units to check for extension finding there was none before the incident was deemed under control. Command and the interior crew remained on scene for the ACFM investigation while the rest of the units were released. There were no injuries reported and with the exception of the unfortunate damage to the vehicle there was no major damage done to the structure keeping this local business open for customers. Crews were on scene a little over 2 hours before the command was terminated and all were clear. Great Job to the attack team and thank you to all that were involved.

Members of the West Mifflin # 3 VFC Station 295 were asked to attend the West Mifflin Home Depot Safety day along with the other three West Mifflin fire companies, West Mifflin Police, and Baldwin Paramedics. Members spent the morning showing off the apparatus and equipment to adults and children from the community. Home Depot has their annual safety day every year during Fire Safety Month and host a spectacular child oriented event including games, building projects, food, and more. The Event is totally free to the public and allows the community to learn about Fire Safety and meet their local Firemen. A great time was had by all, so if you missed this years event look for it next October at your local West Mifflin Home Depot.
