PHOTOS: A visible roof fire Thursday afternoon at a home on Bergeys Mill Road in Lower Salford Township prompted Montgomery County dispatchers to send a dozen fire companies and departments to the scene. The somewhat remote area lacked fire hydrants, and many of the additional units were trucks that are part of the county’s tanker task force to supply water. Tanker fill and dump sites were quickly established so task force units could shuttle water to locations where firefighters needed it. Hoses snaked across roadways and through trees to meet the demand.
The Harleysville Community Fire Company, on its Facebook page, reported that responders “made a quick attack on the fire and stopped it from spreading throughout.”
