Just before 1800 hours, township companies along with companies 14, 52, and RIT and MICU 23 were dispatched to the 400 block of Christian Lane for a reported house fire. Chief 65 arrived on scene with a 2 story single family with nothing evident from the exterior. Upon further investigation, a fire was found on the stove which was starting to extend into the hood and cabinets above. Engine 65 arrived and stretched a line inside. The crew was quickly able to knock the fire down using a dry chemical extinguisher to prevent any further damage or extension. Chief 65 had the command.

Engine 65-1 for now
Looking good so far!
When the GCFD was on Blakeley RD, there was a plaque outside dedicated to those who served in WWII. My father & his 4 brothers were listed, Townsend. My uncle, Verne, was at the top as paying Supreme Sacrifice. If the plaque is still there, could someone please take a photo & post on FB? I would love to see it again. Thank you.
Will this be the new 65-1 or 65-2
