30 Second StEngine 1811 and Engine 1812 responded with the Catasauqua Fire Department for a structure fire at 30 Second Street, Catasauqua Borough.  The fire was spotted by a Catasauqua Police Officer on patrol, who notified the sleeping residents of the fire and evacuated them.


Engine 211 laid a supply into the scene and stopped short due to down power lines laying in the street and ultimately had 3 lines stretched and operating.  Ladder 231 met nose-to-nose with Engine 211 and set up to the roof.  Both Engine 1811 and 1812 went to Railroad Street in the rear of the property.
