West Side Bedroom Fire 4/17/2015 (PHOTOS)
Posted On: May 03, 2015

At 12:42 pm on April 17, 2015 a fire was reported at 347 Roberts Ct.  Engine Co. 7, Engine Co. 8, Rescue Co. 1, Truck Co. 2 and Car 21 were dispatched.  Car 21 activated the SRN after reporting smoke visible while still enroute, Engine Co. 10 and Engine Co. 4 were added to the incident. This house was directly behind Charles Sumner elementary School and to complicate the scene the school was dismissing class during this time.  The Deputy Chief (Car 26) worked with the principal to safely get the children out of school and away from the incident.  When Engine Co. 7 arrived flames were venting out of a second floor window and threatening an adjacent home. Two 1 3/4 inch attack lines were taken off of Engine 7, one taken inside the other used to protect the home next door.  Fire Inspectors #2 and #3 were called to the scene and by 3:37pm the last company would clear the scene. 

The Officer in Charge was Assistant Chief J. Floryshak
