Back-to-Back House Fires

June 21, 2024

The Engine ran back-to-back fires this morning.  The 1st in Derry Twp, north of New Alexandria, where crews had a kitchen fire with a person trapped.  Safety 77 arrived first, confirmed the working fire & escorted the disabled homeowner out of the residence, while Engine 77 stretched a line on the fire.  Engine 34 arrived 2nd due, laid in from the nearest hydrant, the chauffer threw ladders & went to the roof, before assisting interior crews with overhaul.  The 2nd fire occurred in Salem Twp off Route 819 in 59’s District.  Crews had an electrical fire on the exterior of the house with extension into the wall & smoke condition inside.  The Engine crew assisted with securing the power inside, checking for extension on the 1st floor and ventilation.  Once the main power was confirmed secured by West Penn Power, crews opened up and extinguished the remainder of fire.  Units out 3 hours.  Thanks to our mutual aid departments who covered for us while operating at these incidents.
