Sunday at 16:35 Southern Area Fire and Emergency Rescue - SAFER was dispatched for a Structure Fire. While enroute Chief 13 was given additional information of a deck fire with possible extension to the structure. Upon arrival of Chief 13, while doing his 360 size up found heavy fire to the Side C of the house with extension to the house and smoke pushing out the eaves of side Alpha. He called for working Fire Dispatch. All occupants were out of the house except one canine still inside. Truck 77 arrived and started their primary search. Engine 37, Engine 13-2, and Rescue 38 arrive right after truck 77. Crews established two water sources from two different hydrants. They had one line deployed to side C, and three lines deployed to the interior of the house. The crews were able to have the fire under control in 25 minutes and reported out in 50 minutes. All crews did a great job especially working with outside temperatures in the 90’s. Crews were able to find the canine and remove him from the structure. He was given water and oxygen and released to the homeowners. Including Station 13 and our soon to be station 13-3 (Yorkana Fire Company Station 38) SAFER had around 30 members on scene and seven pieces of equipment. There was some exposure damage to the adjacent house to the siding from the heat.
Thank you to all helped on this call and our Mutual Aid companies Alliance Fire and Rescue Services, Inc., Laurel Fire Company #1 - Windsor PA, Goodwill Fire Company #1 York Township, York Area United Fire and Rescue, Wrightsville Fire, and our standby stations. Crews were on scene for over 2 hours.
