Penbrook Fire 30

***1st Due House Fire***

Last night as company 30 and mutual aid were returning from a reported box alarm in the borough that turned out to be burnt plastic in a dishwasher, company 30 and mutual aid were dispatched to another reported house fire with reported entrapment on 29th St. in the borough. Engine 32 arrived with smoke in the street with Chief 30-1 (Lacher) arriving seconds later assuming the command advising a 3 story duplex fire showing on the 2nd and 3rd floor. Crews were advised by PD all occupants accounted for. Crews were met with heavy fire conditions on the 2nd and 3rd floors extending into the exposure. Shortly into the incident, command requested the 1st alarm bringing Engine 50 and Rescue 35 to the scene. Crews operated for about 4 hours before going available. We would like to thank our mutual aid companies for assisting us on scene and Engine 47 for covering our first due. Below is a short video from one of our members.
