An additional phone call was received at fireboard three minutes after the initial dispatch reporting fire was visible from the attic.

Two minutes later 6-4 arrived on location and reported a two-story dwelling with fire through the roof. 6-4 took the 1st due engine assignment and stretched in with a 5” supply line. They also stretched two attack lines into the dwelling. 12-6 and Ladder 12 arrived next simultaneously. Ladder 12 took the 1st due special service assignment and 12-6 the 2nd due special service assignment. Crews made an aggressive fire-attack under difficult conditions. A primary and secondary survey was conducted; the dwelling was ventilated, laddered and the utilities were controlled and extensive overhaul was completed. EMS staff from B3, B6, B15, A21, Medic 6C, ALS 25 and ALS 17, along with Christiana’s Rehab Group, Sandy and Amanda Faulls, and Sheri Lutz provided medical monitoring and cold liquids to the approximately forty firefighters on location.
