At 23:19 Friday, October 25, Whitehall Fire Radio sent Whitehall Station 1, Engine 4, 14, Woodlawn Engine 32 to the Helfrich Springs Apartments located at 900 Mickley Road for a fire on the balcony. Chief 16 (3501) arrived and reported a working fire in building 'V', a 3-story Occupied Multiple Dwelling (OMD). The seat of the fire was located on the top floor of side 3 (rear). The fire dropped to the balcony below and extended into the cockloft before the arrival of the first due company. Chief 16 (3501) special-called Whitehall station 3 at 23:25. Engine 1 arrived and stretched a line to the fire floor. Members pulled ceilings and found heavy fire in the cockloft. At 23:27, command special-called Catasauqua's Ladder 231. Ladder 231 positioned in the rear of the fire building. Whitehall's Squrt 3 (3831) positioned in front of the building and set up their elevated master stream. Assistant Chief 1A (3602) ordered all members out of the fire building at 23:46 so the master streams could go in-service to try and darken down the bulk of the fire. At 23:43 command ordered the 2nd alarm be struck. Whitehall Fire Radio transmitted the 2nd alarm sending Whitehall Engine 2, Catasauqua Engine 211, Coplay Engine 5, HanLeCo Engine 33, North Catasauqua Engine 18, Northampton Engine 42 and Schnecksville Engine 22. With the fire extended to exposure 4, a similiar attached building, crews went to the roof and made a trench cut while interior members pulled ceilings. The crews working this exposure stopped the fire from extending past the first apartments in that building. When the bulk of the fire was darkened down in the original fire building, the elevated master streams were turned off and interior crews continued hitting the fire from the interior. The bulk of the fire was was out by 00:30 hours Saturday morning. However, crews remained on the scene overhauling and hitting hot spots well into the morning. Mutual Aid companies started picking up and returning around 01:15. The fire was determined to have started in a storage room on the balcony of the third floor apartment. *NOTE ~ The first alarm assignment on this call was altered and some initial first due companies on the box were not sent because 3 out of 5 department stations were out-of-service for a fund raising event that is conducted on Friday and Saturday evenings through the month of October. Stations 1 and 4 run the calls during the event with South Whitehall's Woodlawn Engine 32 on the initial box as mutual aid.
