Sharon Hill Fire Company - Station 9

Two Working Fires, First in back to back

September 30th, 2012  
Shortly before 1am Company 9 was dispatched to 909 Delview on the working fire assignment in Folcroft. Engine 09-2 responded with 5 and arrived shortly after Engine 01. Per 01 Command Engine 09-2 was advised to lay in and take side A. Engine 01 was reporting a car fire with extension to a deck and dwelling in the rear. Crews from 09-2 stretched an 1 ¾ handline threw ground ladders and began an interior attack. Crews encountered fire in the rear of the dwelling on the first floor and knocked such. A backup line from Engine 09-2 was stretched to the rear for Engine 01’s crew due to Engine 01 running out of water. Engine 09-3 and 09-1 also responded on the call. Shortly after the fire was placed under control a second fire 2 blocks away was dispatched. Engine 09-3 and 09-1 were redirected to that incident. Engine 09-3 arrived on location and reported similar conditions to the first fire and placed an 1 ¾ handline in service to knock down such. Minor extension was found to the rear of the dwelling and was quickly placed under control as well.
