At 7:09 PM, Tower and Engine 45 were dispatched on the First Alarm assignment to assist Station 38 (Thorndale Fire Co.) with a house fire on Lynn Blvd. in Caln Twp.
Chief 38 (D. Donnachie) arrived on location with smoke showing from the single family ranch house. After further investigation, a working bedroom fire was found, which added Rescue 45 to the assignment.
The crew from Tower 45 (Capt. McCarraher) placed ground ladders around the house, horizontally ventilated and assisted with salvage and overhaul. The crews from Engine 45 (Lt. Seese) and Rescue 45 (Past Ass’t. Chief J. Stevens) were assigned to the man-power pool. After the fire was brought under control and overhaul was underway, Engine and Rescue 45 became available and returned to station.
