Helmet Camera – House Fire in Lansdowne, PA


Lansdowne Fire Company – Deleware County, PA (web site here)

Sunday, July 15, 2012.  Just after dinner time, LFCO was dispatched to the 100 block of Lansdowne Court. PD arrived on location with fire showing and the assignment was quickly upgraded to a working fire. Engine 19 hit the street, picked up a hydrant 650ft away, and layed in. Engine 19 arrived to find fire showing from the 1st floor windows of sides alpha and delta. While the officer assumed command, the line-man quickly stretched a 1 3/4″ pre-connect  as the control-man forced the front door. The team found a few rooms involved and made quick work on the fire. Truck 19 crew assisted with the primary search, ladder placement, and ventilation, while Pipeline19 assisted with water supply. This fire is still under investigation. Big thanks go out to mutual aid from company’s 24, 16, 09, 04, 03, 43, and 47.  Units were on location for several hours. Great job and quick stop.
