On Sunday morning West Mead #1 was dispatched at 6:22 AM as part of a second-alarm to assist Meadville Central with a working fire on Spring Street. Engines 28-12 and 28-13 responded to the three-story wood-frame apartment building. Firefighters fought the stubborn blaze that spread from a second-floor apartment into the third floor, walls, and attic. The fire was finally brought under control at 7:42 AM. West Mead #1 personnel assisted with securing utilities, raising ground ladders, fire suppression, overhaul, and equipment cleanup.

In addition to second-alarm companies West Mead #1 and #2, Vernon Central, and Saegertown, Meadville Central Chief Evan Hasko requested assistance from Vernon Township, Hayfield, Summit, and Conneaut Lake Park.

All 28 units cleared the scene and returned to service by 10:15 AM.
