Dauphin County Communications advised they were receiving multiple calls reporting a working fire. The police department arrived, confirming the report and advising of a room and contents fire on the second floor of a 2 1/2 story single family structure. Engine 59-1 responded within minutes of dispatch with a crew of 6 personnel and was advised by Engine 55 to pick up their hydrant.
