Working Garage Fire
By Lieutenant Brandon Cole

The Avondale Fire Company was dispatched to assist the Kennett Fire Company with a garage fire on Nine Gates Roads at 1910 hours. Chief 24 arrived to find a fully involved 2 story detached garage. With the lack of hydrants in the area, Chief 24 requested the first alarm tanker task force. Engine 25-2 arrived and laid their supply line up the driveway. Engine 24 arrived and picked up engine 25-2's supply line and supplied water from the road to the scene. Engine 23-1 arrived as the fourth due engine. Engine 23-1's crew was assigned to the roof of the Charlie side to open up the roof for ventilation. Engine 23-2 arrived and assisted with fire suppression. Tanker 23 also responded and assisted in water supply by hauling water from a hydrant to the fire scene. The fire was placed under control and Avondale crews assisted in overhaul and clean up. Crews cleared around 2230 hours

Special thanks to Lancaster Tanker 52 for standing by at Avondale.
