Chief 24 went on location taking over command. Three lines were immediately stretched as fire was rapidly spreading into the roof area of the building. One line was stretched to the rear, two through the front door and one to side 4 of the building.Â
Ladder 47 went to the roof to cut a vent hole. A water supply was established using a hydrant across the street from the fire building. Crews worked for about 45 minutes to darken down all the fire. Crews in the garage had a stubborn fire above the ceiling in the roof line and had to pull ceilings to gain access to the fire. The crew in the rear continued to water down the deck and the exterior of the house.Â
A total of 4 hand lines were stretched and operating. One firefighter and the homeowner were transported to area hospitals with minor injuries. Catasauqua was requested for a second F.A.S.T. company.”
