Tower Ladder 701 was requested during this early morning blaze which involved a section of historic downtown Pottsville. The fire building housed Lisa's Floral Expressions. The Tower was given assignment to the rear of the address with Pottsville Engine 11. Immediately placed into service, TL-701 utilized the elevated master stream to assist in fire supression along with several deluge devices from the front of the building after an interior attack was unsuccessful due to the rapid growing volume of fire. Fire extension was minimal to adjacent exposures which mainly received smoke and water damage.
