Article by Justin Butterworth
Late Tuesday night, residents on Troy Hill Road awoke to the sounds of an explosion at a large privately owned garage. Upon investigation, neighbors found the garage to be fully involved and called 911. Hope Fire Company was dispatched to assist Morris Township Fire Company shortly after 23:30 on the first alarm assignment just outside our first due. Engine 11-10 responded with a crew of seven within three minutes of initial dispatch and Tanker 11-19 responded just a short time later. Engine 11 was the first unit on scene and laid 100' of LDH supply line from the hard road to the scene. The crew immediately went to work pulling one 1 3/4" attack line. Chief 17 arrived on scene and established Troy Hill Command. The aluminum sided building had already partially collapsed and a defensive operation was in effect from the beginning. The Hope crews operated on scene for just under two hours until the box was placed available at 01:35 hours. Also assisting Morris Township and Hope Fire Companies were Reliance Fire Company of Philipsburg, Winburne Fire Company, and Wallaceton Fire Company. Grassflat and Houtzdale Fire Companies were cancelled enroute. The Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshall and Morris Township Fire Company are investigating in efforts to determine a cause of the blaze.
