September 2011

While operating at a three-story twin vacant building that was fully involved in Chester, PA, the officer in charge struck a second alarm, but was then informed of another building fire a block away. One engine from the first alarm and one truck from the second alarm were diverted to the second fire. The units found heavy fire in a two-story single vacant dwelling. The fires occurred on June 19, 2011.
