Reading companies were sent to this corner tax-payer at 4th & Buttonwood for a fire with people trapped. All occupants were able to escape safely.
Reading, PA - With several days of oppressive heat througout the region, firefighters were challenged with multiple fire and medical incidents. On Wednesday evening July, 17th frantic phones calls were placed to the 911 center reporting the hair salon at 4th and Buttonwood on fire with people trapped above. Chief Banks (Car 5) and Engine 3 arrived with smoke showing at a 3 story EOR. Firefighters quickly made their way into the apartments above a hair salon to search for occupants. A hose line was stretched into the structure and a smoky fire was quickly knocked down. All searches of the 2nd and 3rd-floor apartments were clear, all occupants were safely able to evacuate. No injuries were reported. The Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
