Mount Penn / Pagoda fire – 11/22 – 11/23/2016

On 11/22/2016, Northern Bucks was dispatched to help contain a fire burning on Mount Penn, directly above the city of Reading. The fire had spread rapidly the previous day and overnight, threatening nearby homes and the city’s famous Pagoda building. In what turned out to be two days of operations, crews performed line construction, wet and dry mop up, saw work and burnout operations until the fire was fully contained.
