FF Loses Home in Blaze; No Hydrants In the Area

Associated Press

September 07, 2010

A Lancaster County firefighter lost his home in a fire early Monday.

Eric Reisinger said he, his girlfriend, and his father were sleeping when the fire started, possibly in the garage of the house along Elizabeth Road in Washington Boro. He said he awakened to the sounds of tires popping.

Everyone escaped the flames, but the house was gone by time other firefighters arrived. There are no fire hydrants in the area.

“We actually had to send pumpers to the river,” Washington Boro Fire Chief Brett Graham said. “Instead of a suburbs setting where you have fire hydrants, we don’t have the luxury.”

Officials have not determined what caused the fire, but Reisinger said he thinks it was intentionally set.
