Shortly after 6 AM, Monroeville Fire Department units were dispatched for a commercial dryer fire at a health club in the First District. Engine 12 arrived to find smoke showing from the side bravo loading dock area. C-11 (Deputy Chief Lieb) established command. Engine 12 stretched a line and found the fire to be contained inside the dryer. Engine 41 established a water supply to the standpipes and to Engine 12. The fire was quickly extinguished, and units remained on scene for about an hour working to ventilate the large structure. The incident is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshal.
