Goodbye to Past Chief
May 22 - Another pioneer of the Cliffor Thownship Volunteer Fire Company was laid to rest.  William R. Machell, 75, of Clifford, died Wednesday at home after a brief illness.Born Sept. 25, 1941, in Carbondale, son of the late Albert "Pat" and Rachel Bowen Machell, Bill was a graduate of Mountain View High School and served in the Air Force from 1959 to 1963.

He had been a talented self-employed carpenter his entire working career. Bill was a lifelong member of the Clifford Baptist Church, a longtime member of the Clifford Twp. Volunteer Fire Company and a board member of the Willow View Cemetery Association in Clifford.

He was a devoted family man who was always an active part of his daughter's childhood and life, even though she lived in Virginia since the age of 8. Bill was a role model to his two grandsons and always looked forward to his monthly visits with them.

Bill, we will miss you but never forget you!

Two alarm fire in Dundaff
May  18 - Crews battled a two-alarm structure fire on SR247 in the township in the
Village of Dundaff.

Chief 18 arrived within minutes of dispatch with flames already thru the roof of the structure. A defensive operation was established off L18 with multiple handlines and the ladder pipe being placed into service.

E24 established a dumpsite for tankers and supplied L18. Multiple additional companies worked to supply water thru three fill sites and 8 tankers, assist with suppression and overhaul, along with EMS rehab for the fire fighters.

Thanks to all our mutual aide departments for an excellent job.




Two alarm fire in Forest City
May 12 – At 15:30 hours  Ladder 18 was dispatched to assist Forest City as part of the first alarm assignment at 725 Delaware Street for a possible structure fire. 41 EMS was first arriving reporting heavy fire in two 2 1/2 story residential. A second alarm was requested. L18's crew went to work opening up and attempting entry as the occupant was unaccounted for. Conditions in the initial structure deteriorated rapidly and the attempts were suspended. L18 would be repositioned in front of the address and would place the ladder pipe in service to assist in suppression. Once the bulk of the fire was knocked down, the crews would continue to assist in overhaul. Units operated for over 4 hours. Great job by all departments involved.
