Gettysburg Fire Department and surrounding mutual aid firefighters battled this early morning Barn Fire on Knoxlyn-Orrtanna Road in extreme cold temperatures (13deg). Firefighters found a well involved Barn Fire on arrival. A Working Fire Dispatch was sounded along with several Tankers to shuttle water to the scene.
** We did not want to release the injured Gettysburg Firefighter information, but now that the local news media has the information, a firefighter was injured while successfully rescuing a horse from his neighbors barn prior to fire apparatus arriving. The 911Photography staff wishes him the best as he recovers from his injuries**
