At 1:08pm, MFC fire/EMS responded with Station 45 (Alert FC) to an automobile accident in front of the CCIU on Boot Road in East Caln. Units arrived to find a two vehicle accident partially blocking the roadway. Crews cleared debris and fluids from the roadway, and provided traffic control. Those injured were evaluated and treated on location by EMS, and refused transport to the hospital. Fire units remained on location until the safe removal of the vehicles.

While returning from the accident at 1:51pm, the department was alerted with mutual aid for a mobile home fire at Loretta's on Uwchlan Ave in East Caln. Engine 46-2 and Rescue 45 responded immediately and arrived within 2 minutes confirming a small fire on the front porch. The majority of the fire was already knocked down with extinguishers by nearby civilians. Battalion 46 (Brooks) held the response to DFD units and requested fire marshal's to the scene. The area was overhauled and zero extension was found into the structure. After ventilation was performed and the area was completely wet down, the scene was turned over to County and Township Fire Marshals for an investigation.
