Fire Box 2100

At 1957 hours, the Union Fire Company No. 1, along with Mutual Aid from West Grove (22), Cochranville (27), Rising Sun (8), and Quarryville (57), was alerted for the reported house on fire in the 700 block of Broad Street in the Borough of Oxford. Several calls to 911 reported a possible kitchen on fire.

Engine 21-1 (FF W. Slauch) arrived, dropped a 5" supply line from the hydrant at Seventh and Broad Streets, and reported fire showing from the "C/D" corner of the single story ranch-style home. The Working Fire Dispatch was struck bringing an additional engine and truck to the scene. The crew then stretched a handline to the side entrance and made entry to attack the fire.

Deputy 21 (Obenchain) arrived and established the "Broad Street Command".

Ladder 21 (Lt. Vitanza) arrived in front of the house. The crew performed a primary search of the structure, threw ground ladders, then went to the roof to open up with the assistance from the crew of Utility 21.

Additional arriving apparatus staged and sent their crews in to the Manpower Pool.

A quick knock down of the fire allowed the scene to quickly be scaled back to the Union units.

The Chester County Fire Marshals Office is investigating the fire.

The final units were clear of the incident at 2302 hours.

Engine 23-1 (Avondale) and Tower 24 (Kennett Square) transferred into Station 21 to cover our District.

Units: Ambulance 21-1, Ambulance 21-2, Deputy 21, Engine 21-1, Engine 21-2, Ladder 21, Rescue 21, and the Fire Police
 
Mutual Aid: Engine 812, Engine 18, Engine 22-1, Engine 22-2, Engine 27-1, Engine 27-2, FM101, FM104, Ladder 22, Medic 94-2, Rescue 27, Rescue 57, and Truck 57
