Box 2100

At 1854 hours, the Union Fire Company No. 1, along with surrounding mutual aid companies, were alerted to the 300 block of Penn Avenue in Oxford Borough for a reported house on fire. Chester County Fire Radio advised responding units of a reported fire in the kitchen of the home.

Engine 21-1 (Captain Kane) and Deputy 21 (Meadowcroft) arrived to a 2 story house with smoke showing.

Engine 21-1 crew members deployed a 200', 1.75" handline through the front door and began a aggressive fire attack in the kitchen area.

Ladder 21 (Chief Engineer Obenchain) arrived and set the aerial ladder to the roof. Crew members completed a primary search of the structure, as well as set portable ladders on all sides of the structure.

Engine 21-2 (Past Chief Fowler), and Cecil County Truck 8 arrived and assisted crews inside. Truck 8 set its aerial main to the roof on the Charlie/Rear side of the structure.
Lancaster County Rescue 57 operated as the rapid intervention team for the incident.
West Grove units were on scene for a short period of time before responding to a call in their own district.

Quick extinguishment of the fire allowed command to release most mutual aid units from the fireground in a timely manner. A portion of mutual aid units responded to a separate incident in Southern Chester County.

Station 21 operated at this incident for just over 2 hours.

Deputy Chief Meadowcroft held the "Penn Avenue Command"

Lancaster County Station 57 (Quarryville) handled a Motor Vehicle Collison with Union EMS in Oxford Borough while we operated at this incident. Rescue 57 covered the 21 district until the remainder of units cleared Penn Ave.

No injurys were reported at this incident.
