Firefighters battled this mobile home fire where a neighbor has suspected to set the vacant home on fire.
Crews found heavy fire showing from the home upon arrival.
Firefighters removed the siding from most of the home to hit hot spots.
East Drumore, PA - Just after 11:10 A.M. on July 4th, crews from Quarryville, Bart Township and Robert Fulton Fire Companies were alerted to a mobile home fire at 10 Laura Ct. in East Drumore Township. Multiple neighbors called in, stating that they saw smoke and flames coming from a mobile home.
Chief 57-2 arrived and reported fire showing from the 'Alpha' side, with exposure problems on the 'Delta' side. Chief 57-2 reported the home to be vacant and requested Pennsylvania State Police to the scene. Engine 57-4 arrived first and immediately stretched two hand lines towards the home. Tanker 57 arrived and supplied Engine 57-4. Firefighters were able to quickly knock down a bulk of the fire. As more crews arrived they assisted with the mostly exterior operation.
State Police arrived and talked to bystanders about the situation. An officer then arrested an intoxicated neighbor who allegedly set the mobile home on fire. After a short bout of resisting, the subject was placed in handcuffs.
EMS from Oxford Fire Co. performed a medical evaluation on the suspected arsonist, as well as assisted with rehab for firefighters. Crews performed overhaul along the exterior of the mobile home to extinguish all hot spots and were able to stop the fire from spreading to the 'Delta' exposure. The fire was brought under control within one hour and crews began clearing the scene after conducting extensive overhaul.
