Sharon Hill Fire Company - Station 9

Engine 9-2 arrives with Heavy Smoke Showing

May 11th, 2012  

After a busy day running two fire alarms in the first due Engine Company 9 was dispatched to the unit block of High Street, Sharon Hill for reported smoke coming from the dwelling. Engine 9-2 hit the streets in seconds with 4 and was quickly advised by Ambulance 04-7B they had heavy smoke showing. Engine 9-2 secured its own water supply and arrived to find a 2 Story Middle of the Row with heavy smoke showing from the 1st floor. Crews went in service with an 1 3/4 handline and quickly knocked down the fire on the 1st floor and held it to the room of origin and an adjacent room. Interior crews intially reported extension to the 2nd floor however that was unfounded. Company 06 was also added to the box for additional manpower and RIT-43 for the second RIT as it appeared the fire may be extending to the adjacent exposures.
