Southern Chester County Regional Police arrived with fire showing. Chief 23 added the working fire dispatch. The working fire dispatch added Rescue 27, FMs and Medic 94 for a fire scene standby. Chief 23 arrived with fire showing, confirmed the working fire and established the Newark Road Command. Engine 23-1 arrived and dropped 5” at the end of the driveway and pulled two 1 ¾" to extinguish the building. Tower 24-1 was the first arriving truck and laddered the building.
