Dauphin County advised they received an additional call that caller had stated the building was on fire. With this info, Captain 36 (Wolfgang) upgraded the box to a full structure fire assignment. Truck 34 arrived just ahead of engines 36-1 and 36-2 and reported light smoke from the lobby roofline. Upon arrival Chief 36 (Smedley) established incident command. Captain 36 ( Wolfgang) took operational command..The truck went in service and the engine crew went to work opening up the exterior wall. Upon further inspection the fire was found to be running the walls and into the attic space. Captain 36 immediately requested a full first alarm assignment. First in crews worked aggressively to hold the fire to the lobby entrance and slight extension into the attic. Multiple units were requested for manpower for overhaul due to the high heat outside today. A thanks to all departments who assisted.
