Commercial Building Fire Among 6 Calls for Co. 53
Shortly after 11am the Broomall Fire Co. was alerted to an investigation call in the 1100blk of Sussex Blvd, Marple Twp. reporting a burning odor in the building. First arriving Truck 53 encountered a working fire in the lower level of the commercial building. At that point the assignment was upgraded to a working fire and additional units from mutual aid agencies were dispatched. Engine 53 arrived and initiated a quick fire attack and extinguished the fire, while additional crews worked to ventilate the building and check for extension. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
In addition BFC volunteers have been steady today answering 6 calls so far including a gas leak, CO incident, and a reported vehicle fire on I-476 to name a few.
