By Firefighter Joshua May
January 14, 2022

At 12:29 A.M. 911 was alerted of a house on fire near the Triple Fresh in East Fallowfield Township, Deputy 44 updated the new address and reported a working residential fire with reported entrapment and heavy fire from the Alpha/Delta Side. Initially, Po-Mar-Lin was not dispatched but with the upgrade to a working house fire in an area with no hydrants, Tanker 36 was dispatched as part of the tanker task force.
Engine 36, Rescue 36, and Tanker 36 made a quick response, with our engine being fourth due. The rescue crew assisted in establishing a fill site to support the water supply and fill tankers from the tanker task force. Engine 36 crew assisted in securing utilities, overhaul, ventilation, and checking for extension throughout the structure. The Engine crew stretcher an attack line into the basement where they were met with heavy smoke conditions and heat in several rooms. After roughly two hours in operation, all of Po-Mar-Lin's crews had cleared the scene.

Thankfully the residents of the house all made it out and there were no injuries sustained by any crew members.

Thank you to West Grove Fire Company for the standby at our station while our crews worked hard.

A special thanks to IrishEyez Photography for photos of the house fire and our crews.
