Video above with radio traffic from Newsworking's Bill Rohrer (newsworking) and some earlier video below from Jayson Wagner at today's 4-alarm fire at a Jiffy Lube in Salisbury, Pennsylvania (Lehigh County). Here's Bill's description:

At 11:51 Monday morning, Lehigh County Radio dispatched Western Salisbury Station 31, Eastern Salisbury Engine 2012, Emmaus Engine 7-11, Cetronia Truck 3-31 and Emmaus EMS 63 to 3111 Lehigh Street for a structural fire at the Jiffy Lube.

Initial dispatch reports to the chief advise multiple calls for a heater on the roof on fire. EMS 63 arrives on location and reports heavy smoke showing from the roof. Chief 31-03 transmits the 2nd alarm.

At 11:58, Lehigh County transmits the 2nd alarm sending the balance of Stations 31, 20, 3, 7 and 1 as the designated F.A.S.T. company.

31 command orders Ladder 31 to position on the Alpha side of the building and ladder the Alpha/Bravo corner. He also orders Engine 20 to bring water to the Charlie side of the building to supply Engine 711 using the hydrant directly across the street from the fire building.

With limited manpower, command strikes out the 3rd alarm at 12:04.

Within the hour, the fire escalates to a 4th Alarm. The fire started on the north side of the roof and extended to the south end of the building. The roof eventually collapsed and caused major cracks in the exterior walls.

    Four alarms at a Jiffy Lube? Hell, we could have burned it down with 2 engines.

  • Collapse Zone

    Please be mindful of where you park. It is a one story building and your ladder is 100 feet… All of the trucks are way too close in my opinion.
