UPPER HANOVER TWP., PA - On March 21st at 1:05 P.M., Red Hill Fire Co., along with several other fire companies from the Upper Perk Valley, were dispatched to a working garage fire on Miller Rd.

Upon arrival, Red Hill Fire Chief Mike Eshbach had a structure with extension to the surrounding brush and trees.

There were no injuries reported, and the cause of the fire is pending the outcome of the investigation. The fire was brought under control within the 45 minute mark.
