Just before 8:00 AM today, the Downingtown Fire Dept. (Alert Fire Co. No. 1 and Minquas Fire Company No. 2) with our Mutual Aid first alarm assignment were dispatched for a house fire on Downing Circle, East Caln, Twp.
The Downingtown Police Dept. arrived with smoke showing from the rear of the single family dwelling with Battalion Chief 45 (J. Trego) arriving shortly thereafter with fire showing from the rear and requested a second alarm.
The crew from Engine 45 (Lt. McCarraher) assisted with interior fire attack on the second floor with a hand-line from Engine 46-1. The crews from Rescue (Lt. Tatham) and Squad 45 (FF Ginter) assisted with salvage and overhaul after the fire was under control.
