At approximatley 2:10am Darby Fire Co #1, Darby Fire Patrol #2, Collingdale Fire Companies #1 and #2 and the Yeadon Fire Company were dispatched to 117 Fern St for a working building fire with entrapment in 21’s local.
The resident was removed from the porch roof by Darby PD and Medic units first on scene.
Companies arrived to find the first and second floors well off, with fire through the roof. The call eventually went to 2 alarms with special calls.
Interior attacks were initiated, but the fire had a good jump on us so defensive operations were set in place when the conditions inside deteriorated.
Captain-4 had front street command. Crews were onscene till 6am.
Thanks to all companies on scene for their support.
