By Gettysburg Fire Department
November 21, 2020

November 21st @ 1849 hours Co. 1 and mutual aid departments dispatched to 235 Confederate Dr. for smoke in the basement. 1st arriving E1-2 found normal conditions on the exterior of a 2 story SFD. Lieutenant K.Kime established the Confederate Dr. Command while E1-2 personnel began to investigate , finding a light to moderate smoke condition on the exterior of the 1st floor and basement area. As additional units arrived on scene they were tasked with assisting interior personnel on locating the source of the smoke within crawl and void spaces along with any appliances or other potential causes of the smoke. After a thorough investigation it was found that the sump pump in the basement had malfunctioned and burnt up w/ no extension outside of the pump itself. Units operated for approximately 1 hour with Box 1-3-30 being placed in service @ 1950 hrs.
