Tuesday, November 26, 2013 Just following a busy weekend (as noted on this website) the King of Prussia Fire Company responded to a dwelling fire in the 200 block of South Gulph Road. Station 47 (KPVFC) was dispatched as the “first due” company along with Engine Co. 48 (Swedeland F.C.) about an hour after midnight on Tuesday morning. Shortly after dispatch Upper Merion Police Department officers arrived to confirm a fire with victims trapped inside the dwelling. Quick thinking police officers were able to awaken the occupants which enabled them to safely evacuate the residence. Engine 47-1 (Camarda) arrived first due responding from the Allendale Road fire station and stretched an 1-3/4” hoseline while securing their own hydrant for water supply. Squad 47 (O’Donnell) arrived shortly after and were assigned “truck company” operations by Incident Commander, and Fire Chief, Jim Gallagher. Engine Company 48 was assigned to establish a secondary water supply and stretch the second attack hoseline. Rescue 49 (Swedesburg) was dispatched on the “confirmed fire” response and assigned to vertical ventilation. Tower 2 (Berwyn F.C.) was assigned the rapid intervention team duties while special calls for additional engines were requested from Radnor (Delco. sta. 15), Bridgeport #1 (sta. 31), and Goodwill fire companies (sta. 32). The fire was brought under control within 30 minutes.
