On February 1st, the Avondale Fire Company along with Kennett Fire and EMS, Longwood Fire Company, Po-Mar-Lin of Unionville for an engine and Ladder 22 from West Grove were dispatched to the 1000 block of West Baltimore Pike for a garage fire at 1831 hours. Chief 23 (Bessicks) and Deputy 23 (Cole) went responding seconds later and were given a report of a vehicle on fire in the garage with extension. The police arrived on the scene and advised dispatch of a fully involved garage. Deputy 23 was first to arrive with a garage well involved and instructed Engine 23-1 to lay in from the hydrant just east of the incident for water supply. Engine 24-1 arrived and pulled their hand-line to protect the exposure and attacked the fire. Once Engine 23-1 secured a water supply, they pulled another hand-line and assisted with fire suppression. The fire was placed under control quickly and reduced to the 23 and 24 units. Crews did overhaul and cleared around 2000 hours.

Units: Engine 23-1, Rescue, Tanker, Ambulance 23-1, Chief and Deputy.
