At 3:49 PM today, the Downingtown Fire Dept. and our mutual aid partners were dispatched for a building fire at the Social Lounge, in the 500 block of W. Lancaster Ave.
Assistant Chief 46 (S. Miller) arrived on location with a slight haze of smoke in the basement of the building. The assignment was held to the Alert Fire Co. No. 1, Minquas Fire Company No. 2 and the Thorndale Fire Co. units on the scene. The crew from Tower 45 assisted with investigating the source of the fire and checked for extension. It was determined that there was an electrical malfunction in the basement.
