Fire Destroys Landmark Restaurant
1.18.19 - Just after 8AM, the Engine Co was requested to assist the Greenwood Fire Dept

and first alarm companies with a reported commercial structure fire at Nana's Pasta House.

As crews were assembling, reports from PD and EMS on scene indicated a working fire

with a large volume of smoke pushing from the building. Chief 98 immediately added add't

companies to the response. The photo above shows what crews were up against upon arrival.

The fire was already well extended throughout the building, requiring companies to initiate

a defensive attack using multiple master streams and ladder pipes. In all, the fire would go 3 alarms

and completely destroy this landmark. Our volunteers from start to finish put in more than

6 hours of work today. And we're happy to report that no injuries were reported during the operation.

Fire Hits Assisted Living Facility


1.16.19 - Just after 8pm, crews responded to an assisted living facility on Gleason Dr in Moosic for an

activated fire alarm. Chief 98 arrived and was immediately met by a staff member reporting a fire

in the laundry room. A quick glance inside the front door provided an already smoke charge foyer

and main hallway. A second alarm was immediately transmitted. Through the outstanding efforts

of the Oakwood Staff, first alarms companies, Moosic PD and Pennsylvania Ambulance medics and

EMT's we were able to evacuate 15 of the residents that resided closest to the fire area while we

sheltered in place in a safe area the other 30 residents. The fire was confined to the commercial dryer

and laundry room and was held in check by the sprinkler system. Crews stretched a line and

finished up the balance of the fire in short order. The majority of the facility other than the areas

where we sheltered in place were charged with a considerable smoke condition. The LSV fan was

utilized to clear the smoke condition. Once the smoke condition was cleared and the sprinkler system

reactivated we transferred the 15 displaced residents back into the facility. Outstanding work by all

staff members and departments that responded. There was minimal damage to the facility and no injuries.
