Jonathan Drive Working Fire Dispatch

January 31, 2017

At 2054 on January 31st, 2017 the Thorndale Fire Company along with numerous other companies from around the area were dispatched to the 300 block of Jonathan Drive in Caln Township for the house fire. Chief 38 made the response shortly after dispatch and was advised by county that the back corner of the house was reported to be on fire. Lieutenant 49 (East Brandywine) was the first one on scene and reported he had heavy smoke showing from the residence. With that information Chief 38 requested the working fire dispatch and a tanker task force since that area does not have hydrants.

Chief 38, Engine 76 (VA Hospital) and Ladder 41 (Coatesville) all arrived at the same time. Engine 76 pulled into the driveway and stretched a handline into the basement where the bulk of the fire was located. Ladder 41 pulled in behind them and put the ladder to the roof while also throwing ground ladders and forcing entry into the 1st floor of the residence. The next units to arrive began setting up to pump water to Engine 76 via the tankers that were responding.

Crews encountered heavy fire conditions in the basement but were able to make a knock on the fire quickly. Everyone worked diligently to effectively and efficiently bring the fire under control. One resident was injured and transported to the hospital.

Companies on the initial dispatch were 38 (Thorndale), Engine 76 (VA Hospital), Ladder 41 (Coatesville), Engine & Rescue 35 (Wagontown), Engine 44-5 (Westwood) and Tower 47 (Lionville) was the RIT

Working Fire Dispatch added Air 46 (Minquas), Medic 91 and FM101

1st Alarm Tanker Task Force Rescue 44 (Westwood), Engine 47-5 (Lionville), Tanker 8 (Keystone Valley), Engine 48-5 (Glenmoore), Tanker 39 (West Bradford) and Tanker 36 (Po Mar Lin)

Engine 33 (Honey Brook) and Engine 49-5 (East Brandywine) were added later for manpower.

Units: Engine 44-5
