The Drexel Hill Volunteers were dispatched at 12:55 am Thursday, for the RIT assignment to Broomall. Crews from Companies 53 (Broomall), 41 (Newtown Square), 73 (Rose Tree), and 44 (Springfield) were battling heavy fire in the basement of a home at 2950 Pennview Ave, with fire extending to the upper floors and heavy smoke throughout. Rescue 20 (Capt. Stevenson) made the response and upon arrival set up for RIT. Due to the amount of manpower on the Rescue, the crew was split with several members standing by as RIT and the rest going to work assisting first-in crews. The fire was placed under control at the 20 minute mark and the Rescue returned to Drexel Hill a short time later.
