At 2324 hours, Rescue 11 was dispatched (Cascade & Manpower) on the 2nd alarm assignment to South 4th Street in Hamburg Boro for a working house fire with confirmed reports of entrapment. Crews on scene assisted with fire ground operations as needed by Hamburg command. It is with heavy hearts that the lives of 4 were lost in this fire (one was an unborn child). Several members from the Temple Fire Company helped operate at this horrific scene. Please keep the thoughts of the family of those lost and the Emergency staff that were on scene working at this scene.
Nights like this are not easy for members to cope with.
