Additional reports reported a working fire in a multi-family residential structure. Command upgraded the assignment to bring in the SRN companies (Jessup, Lake Ariel, Moscow). First arriving Engine Company encountered a working fire in the second division of the structure with extension into the roof area. Command transmitted a second alarm bringing in additional companies from (Archbald, Dickson City, Hamlin, Throop).
