10:21hrs Hazle Twp Fire dispatched to 555 Oakridge Road in the Humboldt Industrial Park for an AFA. 141 Chief arrived with smoke showing from the rear of the structure and upgraded the box to a commercial structure fire. Plant personnel informed 141 Chief there was a fire in an incinerator. Tower 7 arrived and went to the roof to begin extinguishment through a smoke stack. The crew from Engine 2 proceeded to extinguish the fire at the incinerator and surrounding duct work. Crews had to use multiple dry chemical extinguishers as we were unable to use water on the material. The fire was under control within 45 minutes and command began releasing units. Crews from surrounding municipalities either responded to the scene or were on a move up assignment to Hazle Twp. We would like to thank units from Valley Regional, Hazleton City, Freeland, Harwood, Nuremberg, Shepton, McAdoo and Lehigh Valley EMS.
