Just minutes before 8 am Thursday Companies 20 74 Primos-Secane RIT 37 Upper Darby Engine 36 Cardington-Stonehurst and Medic 103-7 DCMH were dispatched to 4034 Ellendale Rd. for a house fire. As Engine 20-1 Lieut. Rapp was rolling out of the station smoke was visible from the area of the fire several blocks away. 20-1 then dropped a supply line from a hydrant on the way into the scene and arrived to find heavy smoke from all floors and heavy fire blowing out the first floor rear extending up to the second floor and roof. The crew stretched an 1 34 handline for an aggressive interior attack and found a fully involved kitchen fire extending into the dining room. Engine 20-2s Capt. Donohue crew took a second 1 34 to the second floor where they encountered heavy fire in the rear bedroom as well as the cockloft above. Engine 36-2s crew began ventilation as Tower 74s crew began searching for victims on the second floor. UD-11 DC Johnston requested an additional RIT from Company 19 Lansdowne before requesting a full 2nd alarm assignment moments later due to heavy smoke now showing from the attached exposure home. The 2nd alarm then brought in Companies 03 Clifton Heights 34 Llanerch and Rescue 58 Bon Air. Crews battled by pulling walls and ceilings to gain access to the fast moving fire and bring it under control in about 45 minutes. Although there was heavy smoke in the attached home firefighters did an outstanding job of containing the fire to the original home. Company 20 remained on scene for extensive overhaul and was available around 1030 am. 20-9A DC M. Morgan had interior command. Thanks to Engine 09 Sharon Hill and Tower 44 Springfield for covering Station 20 and helping to get us back in service quickly. The 8th Dist. Fire Police also responded.FOR AUDIO OF THIS FIRE CLICK THE LINK BELOW.
