On March 29th, The Avondale Fire Company was dispatched to the 500 block of Oakland Court in the Bancroft Woods Development for a fire alarm. Engine 23-2 arrived shortly after dispatch to find a 2 1/2 story single family dwelling with nothing showing. Upon investigating, crews noticed the residents were not home. Crews had an odor of something burning coming from the house. Engine 23-2 quickly upgraded the assignment bringing Kennett, Po-Mar-Lin, Longwood, Oxford (Lancaster Tanker 51-1), West Grove (Tanker 39) , and Hockessin Fire Companies to the scene. Engine 23-2's crew pulled a 1 3/4" handline and quickly forced entry. After further investigation, Engine 23-2's crew found burnt food on the stove and recalled the assignment with the exception of Tanker 39 from West Grove. Crews checked for extension and found the fire was fully out. Engine 23-2's crew set up two positive pressure fans to clear the smoke from the residence. The company cleared the incident within an hour.

This was the third call that Avondale had responded to that day. Crews also responded to another fire alarm at the Acme Store and found a faulty detector. The tanker also assisted station 21 (Oxford) on a fully involved barn fire on State Road.

Units: Engine 23-2, Tanker 23, Ambulance 23-1, Traffic 23
