Just before 2am on Sunday morning rescue engine 25 was dispatched in the initial box alarm to the 600 Blk of Penn Ave in West Reading borough for report of a building on fire. The rescue engine made the RIT response with a crew of 4 and a duty chief. The 2nd alarm was quickly transmitted due to heavy fire conditions in the rear of the building. After arriving on scene crews assumed the responsibility of 1st due RIT by doing a 360 of the structure and throwing various ground ladders. The 3rd alarm was then struck and after arrival of the next due RIT company the crews were put to work with roof ops and interior operations. The 3rd alarm dispatch also brought tower 25 to the scene. Exeter fire operated on the scene for about 2 and half hours before returning and going available.
