By Fire Chief Michael McWilliams
January 23, 2018

An automobile on fire in the 300 block of Revere Court, Valley Township, summoned the Westwood Fire Company to respond. A call to 911 indicated an automobile was on fire with exposure to a house.

Deputy Chief Scott on arrival reported an automobile fully involved with exposure to two other vehicles and a structure 20’ away. Deputy Chief Scott assumed the Revere Court Command.

Engine 44-5 arrived and stretched the front bumper line to extinguish the fire. Firefighters quickly had the fire knocked down and protected the exposures to where the fire could had spread through direct contact and radiant heat.

The fire was under control within 5 minutes of Engine 44-5 arriving. Ambulance 44-1 was also on scene to assist, fortunately there were no injuries reported.

Units: Engine 44-5, Ambulance 44-1, Deputy 44
