House Fire after a Barricade

Monday (8-8-17) Hanover and Penn Township Firefighters were called to a House Fire on Pleasant Street in Hanover Borough. Firefighters found a fire showing from a single family home. Local Law Enforcement already on the scene advised they had a person of interest who barricaded himself inside the home. After a few hours of the standoff, smoke began coming from the home. The suspect a short time later bailed out of the house and was taken into custody. Firefighters extinguished the fire after the scene deemed safe.

Chief Cromer Retires

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Penn Township Fire Chief Jan Cromer a long, happy and healthy retirment. 

Chief Cromer retired today. Chief Cromer has always been a supporter of 911 Photography granting full access to incidents, without any limitations. It  may not always been a pleasure to “deal with” him but it has always been a pleasure to call friend! 

Best wishes Chief, We will miss seeing you on the fire ground. Enjoy retirement sir.
