On July 28th at approximately 2300 hrs Company 5 responded to a working building fire in the Hammond Building on Penn State campus. Engine 510, staffed with the live-ins and SO 540, caught a hydrant on the way in and was first arriving with a room and contents fire on the first floor. The crew forced entry into the room and knocked the fire down with an 1 3/4″ hand line. Ladder 516 arrived and assisted interior crews with opening up while Engine 514 arrived and stretched a second line to the floor above. The fire was contained to the room of origin and control was marked. Extensive ventilation began and crews began to pick up. The box was placed available a short time later.
