Rescue Engine Runs 21 House Fire
Sunday, October 25, 2015

On the above date, just before 1100hrs, Station 23 was alerted for the RIT as a part of the "working alarm" assignment.  Within minutes, Rescue Engine 23 with a crew of 6 under the command of Captain Mills responded.  Fire Chief 21 arrived and reported a two story single family dwelling with fire showing.  Engine 14 arrived next, secured a water supply and began stretching an attack line.  Rescue Engine 23 arrived seconds later and was directed by command to stretch a second supply line and stretch a back up hand line.  The crew split, the first half stretching two hand-lines to assist with fire suppression, and the other half performing a primary search of the second floor.  Crews found fire in the attached garage, first floor, and the attic area and extinguished the same.  Rescue Engine 23 operated for over 2 hours before being released by command.  A special thanks to Aston Township Engine 17 (Delaware County, PA) for covering our local while the Rescue Engine operated at the fire.
