Engine 332, Engine 333, and Chief 33 responded with a total of 10 men to a house fire in Seat Pleasant this evening. The wagon was dispatched as the 3rd due engine, and the Rescue Engine as the 3rd due special service. Engine Co 33, on the air picking up some pizza for dinner, responded from Killmer Street and 202, and both units arrived as dispatched. Engine 332 laid 300' of
3", and 250' of 1.5" to the rear, gave a rear size up, then stretched
through the basement with negative searches and negative extension. The company then repositioned the line to the 2nd floor, where they checked for vertical extension and
ventilated. Rescue Engine 33 established RIT as ordered, while Chief 33 had Division 1. Both units worked for roughly 20 minutes before being placed in service. And none of the pizza was lost.

Tower Ladder 33 is a very history rich unit and responds to numerous fires every year. It is also well known that the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department produces T-shirts to display the pride that exists among its members, its friends and the fire service as a whole.
It has been an extended time since our last new Tower Ladder shirt has been available to the public. Shipping in the next few weeks, the newest of the Kentland VFD T-shirts is ready for pre order on our company store. www.kentland33.myshopify.com. This will be the first to showcase our 2011 Seagrave/75' Aerialscope affectionately known as "Lucille"
