Tonight @ 2121 the box was struck for a building fire on the 400blk of Trites ave in Norwood. Engine 8 arrived right behind 02-1 and stopped short of the block leaving room for tower 5 and ladder 2, then sent the crew up and backed in to lay out. Snozzle 8 arrived shortly after and sent its crew up. Engine 8's team helped stretch & advance the hand-line into the basement to attack the fire while the balance of the 8 crew worked on the upper floors. The combined crew from 2 & 8 made short work of the fire in basement and the building was checked for extension with none found and ventilated.

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Companies 8 & 7  were dispatched to an automatic fire alarm at the Jones Medical Building at Taylor Hospital. Fireboard relayed reports of flames coming out of the building and 07-9 upgraded to a building fire response. Upon arrival, crews found flames on the outside wall of the Chester Pike side of the building and a heavy smoke condition inside. With the help of thermal imaging cameras, it became apparent that there was fire in the wall of the ground floor Chester Pike side. Crews opened up the walls and extinguished the fire and then ventilated the building. The crews from Prospect Park, Ridley Park and Tinicum worked closely together, opening up with hand tools and saws, utilizing 2 cans and an 1 3/4 attack-line, multiple thermal imagers plus fans and tarps to control the stubborn little blaze, ventilate and protect property.
