September 24, 2022

Units from five fire companies were dispatched to a house fire in East Nottingham Township Friday afternoon.

The West Grove Fire Company was dispatched to assist the Union Fire Company of Oxford (21) on a reported fire in the basement just before 5pm. Also requested was Rising Sun of Cecil County, Maryland, along with Cochranville (27). The 911 Center reported a house fire at 154 Barnsley Road at the railroad tracks, with first arriving units reporting smoke showing and requesting a working fire dispatch, which added Medic 94 and an engine from Christiana Fire Company (52) of Lancaster County.

Units from 21 began an aggressive attack on the fire in the basement, which then had extended up the interior walls to the first and second floors. WGFC responded with Engines 22-2 and 22-1, Tanker 22, and Ladder 22. Tanker 22 went to scene to supply water, with Engine 22-2 completing the supply line hose lay with another 600' of five-inch supply line and then standing by at the fire hydrant some 850' from the fire scene. WGFC firefighters joined with 21 crews to open up walls to check for fire extension on all three floors of the house, with three attack lines ultimately in service.

The fire was brought under control quickly with no injuries reported. WGFC units returned after about one hour. WGFC fire police were also on scene to assist 21 with traffic control and road closures.

Units: Tanker 22, Engine 22-2, Engine 22-1, Ladder 22, 22 fire police
 
Mutual Aid: Units from Oxford 21, Cochranville 27, Christina 52, Rising Sun 8, Medic 94
