The Avondale Fire Company was alerted to assist the West Grove Fire Company on a reported house fire on Rosewood Drive around 2230 hours Sunday night. The Union Fire Company of Oxford and Cochranville Fire Company "RIT" were also alerted. Chief 22 was the first to respond and received the report of a fire in an attached garage with possible extension into the house. Engine 22-2 arrived first with light smoke showing from a two story single family dwelling and put an 1 ¾" hand-line in service. Engine 23-2 and Tanker 23 arrived on the scene. The engine crew reported to the second floor to check for extension. Tanker 23 was returned due to a hydrant being in front of the residence. Engine 23-2's crew assisted with pulling many ceilings and opening up walls. The fire was placed under control by the command. Crews cleared around 0100 hours.
