10/28 - Kuhl Hose was dispatched to assist Belle Valley at a structure fire on Footemill Rd shortly after noon Wednesday.  Millcreek police arrived and reported a working fire with an elderly occupant inside. A Millcreek Police officer pulled the resident from the structure. Both the resident and the officer suffered smoke inhalation, both were treated and transported by Millcreek Paramedics.

The fire is in one of the non hydrant areas of Millcreek  so Kuhl Hose 685 responded along with tenders from Perry Hiway, Waterford and Fairfield. The tenders shuttled water to the scene from a hydrant a short distance away. Addition to setting up water supply, Kuhl Hose personnel assisted Brooksides Engine crew with fire suppression. Crews were pulled from the building by command when the fire in the attic was much further ahead of the crews making an attack. West Lake 489 provided a master stream which quickly knocked down the fire. Once the fire was knocked down crews re-entered the structure extinguish and overhaul the fire.

Belle Valley was assisted by Kuhl Hose, Brookside, Kearsarge, West Ridge, West Lake, Erie Fire, Perry Hiway and Millcreek 929.  The cause is under investigation by Millcreek PD investigators.
