On Monday, May 23, 2005 at approximately 20:30Hrs Montgomery County Dispatch alerted Linfield Fire Co. (Station 51) and Limerick Fire Co. (Station 54) for a Barn Fire on Evergreen Rd by the Sanatoga Exit of Rt 422. Police arrived on scene and confirmed a barn fully involved. Limerick Command was immediately set up and two additional engines requested to the scene. The alarm brought Royersford’s Humane Fire Co. (Station 84) and Friendship Fire Co (Station 85) to the scene both with an Engine. Ladder 54 pulled down the driveway and began hitting the fire from above. Engines from 51 and 54 arrived and began protecting many exposures from the fire. At that time Command requested two additional engines to the scene. This brought Sanatoga Fire Co. (Station 58) and Ridge Fire Co. (Station 62) for Engine 62-1 to the scene. Not long after the dispatch for Engine 62-1 was made Command requested Station 62 for the Pumper-Tanker adding Engine 62-5 to the assignment. Once en-route the 62 units where instructed to enter in off of the Rt 422 by-bass. Engine 62-5 was then instructed to take Tanker 58 place and provide water supply. The fire was then placed under control and crews began overhauling the partially collapsed building. The building that was once a meat processing plant was being used to store classic tractors and some ammunition. Once major water supply was no longer needed Engine 62-5 and 62-1 were released from the scene and sent to Station 51 for standby. All 62 units were able to return and go available around 24:00 hrs.
