April 7, 2010: Every Reade Volunteer Fire Co. firefighters' nightmare was that the top of Blandburg Mountain would burn.  Yesterday at approximately 5:00 pm we were dispatched along with Clfd 28 (Coalport) for a brush fire in the Fiske area.  No fire was found in that area but large columns of smoke could be seen over a large area of the mountain between Rts. 53 (Frugality) and 865 (Blandburg).  Cambria County activated the cameras on the communications towers and reported possibly 5 seperate fires over a large area.  Cutting locks on gates, access was gained via Blandburg by Reade and Frugality by Glendale.  A PSP-Hollidaysburg helicopter was able to lead units to the fire, approximately 5 miles off the main road from either direction.  By the time the fires were reached they had burned into 2 large fires, some with 20'-30' flames.  One fire was approximately 2 miles wide while the second was at least 160 acres.  Crews from three counties (Cambria, Clearfield and Blair) were able to contain the fires but not extinguish them.  The forestry department demanded that all volunteer fire units leave the mountain and by 10:00 pm all units had left the scene.  Two distinct red glows could be seen on the mountain in the darkness.  Forestry had a bulldozer and brought in two crews from Blair and Cambria/Indiana counties and planned on staying all night with plans to call volunteers back in the daylight.  Brush truck crews fought the blazes while brush tankers shuttled water from the Engines that were staged on better dirt roads.  An air tanker from Black Moshannon made several water drops.  Due to the extreme numbers of manpower (approx. 200) and two different fires, two accountability officers (63-Asst. Chief Jenkins and Blair 22 Warden Whiteford) were in charge of keeping track of companies, units and manpower.  Very happy to note that all personnel left the mountain unharmed.  Special thanks to EP Bender Coal for use of two bulldozers, RH Dotts for arriving with a personal dozer, Getta's Store in Glasgow for donating sandwiches and drinks and the Reade Ladies Aux. for delivering them to the scene and the hall. 
     While manpower and units on scene are still being accounted, Fire Companies and resources utilized are:
Cambria County: Reade (63), Ashville (60), Patton (62), Cresson (70), Nicktown (59), Conemaugh (11), Cambria County Command Unit (11-1) w/911 director Brian Feist; Clearfield County: Glendale (28), Irvona (27), Glen Hope (26), Ramey (24), Houtzdale (23), Osceola (22), Westover (45); Blair County: Tipton (21), Bellwood (22), Pinecroft (23), United (12), Newburg (18).  Reade Area Ambulance was on scene as were members of the Reade Twp. Fire Police.  Numerous companies provided standbys at various fire halls.  A great job by all companies.  Also, the Cambria 911 center did an excellent job communicating with the numerous requests while still having to take all the "normal/rountine" calls that came into the center.  A personal "Thank You" from 63-Chief McQuown.  As I met up with Forestry Department Foxtrot-16 Jim Bloom and set up a command post between the two fires, I had every confidence in the first two fire crews on scene, Reade on Fire #1 and Glendale on Fire #2.  The line officers and fire crews took charge of the fires and did a GREAT job while awaiting further manpower.  Coordination, effort and outcome like we had at this fire would make any Chief proud.  This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is what we are about.....working together and getting the job done safely.  Again, thanks to ALL crews.
