A West Nottingham Township Police Officer arrived within minutes reporting fully involved Mobile Home.

The crew from Engine 813 stretched a third 1.75" handline and assisted with mop up.

Additional arriving Tankers dumped their water into Tanker 21. Additional arriving crews staged in the front yard and assisted with various tasks before being released.
