Shortly after 1pm the box assignment was struck out for 1600 Clifton Ave, Darby Township for a reported dwelling fire. Engine 09-2 quickly marked up with 6 and was advised of numerous calls and Police had heavy smoke showing. Engine 09-2 laid out from the hydrant at Roosevelt & Clifton and arrived to find a 2 story End of the Row, Rowhome, with fire showing from 2nd floor Side C and lead off with a 1 3/4 handline. Due to deteriorating conditions on the 2nd floor and attic command pulled crews out and darkened down the fire from the exterior. Crews re-entered the structure within two minutes of being pulled out and finished extinguishing the fire. Engine 09-1 & Engine 09-3 were also on location. Crews also started the initial horizontal ventilation. Special Thanks to Company 52 & 39 for covering our local.
