Later in the morning around 1130, Rescue 91 was alerted to Cumberland county to assist at a house fire. The rescue was quickly cancelled and then alerted to respond to Harrisburg City to assist at a hotel fire. Rescue 91(w/3) assisted with opening up and with deploying a cellar nozzle to extinguish fire in a utility shaft. Air 91-2 also responded to assist.

At around 1500 Swatara Fire-Rescue and mutual aid were alerted to 48th Street in the Rutherford area for a shed fire. First arriving units found a well involved shed which was quickly extinguished. Units also opened up the house to check for extension before going available.
