Mid Afternoon Assist
Thu. Aug 3rd 2017

Today shortly after 1:00 PM Squirt 49 was dispatched to assist Station 47 (King of Prussia Vol. Fire Co.) at a Working Building Fire at the Wawa on South Gulph Rd. Chief 47 arrived to a Peco service line to the building that was burning and extending into the building. Squirt 49 and Chief 49 (J. Recupido) responded with a crew of 3 and staged with other crews until Peco arrived. Once Peco arrived and cut the power to the building, the crew stretched an attack line to the Bravo Side of the building to extinguish visible fire. The crew also utilized Quint 27 (Norristown Fire Department) main to gain access to the roof area to check for extension. Squirt 49 was available by 3:00 PM.

While the Squirt was operating at the Building Fire, Deputy 49 (J. Houseal) and Squad 46 (Jefferson Fire Company No. 1) who was on stand-by at Station 47 handled a Fire Alarm in 49 run local on the 400 Blk. of Hampton Rd.
