According to their Facebook post, after multiple calls were made about a visible flame, a second alarm was summoned. The first fire crew confirmed there was a heavy fire presence leading to a third alarm requested.  

Bradford County Department of Public Safety also details “Crews immediately established several water supply points and began tanker shuttle operations while also initiating aggressive interior and exterior attacks” adding, “During suppression efforts, crews were faced with an exploding oil tank which resulted in a partial roof collapse. Aerial ladders were summoned along with the equivalent of fourth and fifth alarm assignments.”  

Pennsylvania Electric Company was requested to the fire site for a power disconnect. Staff from the facility arrived to help crews navigate the boiler system to avoid a potential steam explosion.

TROY, PA. (WENY) -- Cummings Lumber Company Incorporated's site near the Troy Fairgrounds caught fire Tuesday night. Calls came out just before 12 a.m. for emergency crews to respond.

WENY's reporter on scene was not allowed to get close to the fire, but saw numerous emergency vehicles, including firetrucks and tankers, race towards the fire.

PennDOT had the road surrounding Cummings blocked off for miles. When WENY's crew was last on scene around 2 a.m., Route 14 was closed from the intersection with Route 6 in Troy to the intersection with Austinville Rd. in Columbia Cross Roads.

Emergency officials on scene would not comment on the scope of the fire, details of the response, and how long it might take firefighters to extinguish the blaze.

This is a developing story. WENY News will update the article when more information becomes available.
