Firefighters aboard Engine 5-13-1 and Tanker 5-13, started fire suppression efforts as surrounding companies were still responding. Quarryville Truck 5-7 was the fourth unit to arrive at the scene. Deputy Chief 5-13 directed them to set up on the B/C side of the barn and prepare for elevated master stream.
