On December 22, West Mead 1 and West Mead 2 were dispatched for a reported structure fire on Liberty Street Extension. Engines 28-12 and 28-13 responded to the scene while 28-11 responded to Water Street to establish water supply. Engine 29-2 and Rescue 29-8 from West Mead 2 responded directly to the scene. Upon arrival by 28-12, personnel reported smoke showing with working fire from a single-story brick commercial structure. Crews from 28 pulled a 1 3/4″ crosslay into the building and began pulling the ceiling to access the attic. Crews from 29-2 and 29-8 laddered the front of the structure to check for fire extension into the roof while interior crews from both departments worked on extinguishing fire that had extended above the ceiling.

Crews from both departments were in-service by 2:17 pm.

Meadville Ambulance assisted with an on-scene ambulance crew during the incident.
