Sign Fire In Strawpump’s First Due

Strawpump and the first alarm were requested to the Penn-Irwin Motel for a report of smoke coming from the structure. North Huntingdon Police advised their sign was on fire not the building. Chief 2 requested all units hold except for what was on-scene. Chief 2 then requested the Quint into the scene due to the instability of the sign which in turn made it near impossible to use ground ladders to open the sign and extinguish the fire. Quint 10 responded and laddered the sign then sent personnel up to open the sign and remove what turned out to be a birds nest that had burned. After the sign was cleared of all smoldering debris, the Quint was released by Chief 2.
