Greenfields Co. 55 crewmembers, along with crews from surrounding companies, were dispatched to the Penn State Berks Campus on Tulpehocken Rd. in the pre-dawn hours of Friday morning to assist Township of Spring with a reported structure fire.
Upon arrival, the GFC found that a fire had started in a dorm room in The Woods dormitory. The dorm room’s sprinkler had discharged, which had contained the fire to the room and its contents.
Crewmembers from the GFC assisted with the evacuation of the building and were released from duty around 4:30 a.m. No report of the extent of the damage to the room, or the cause of the fire was available.
