Car Fires for days!
Thursday, July 30, 2015 
On Thursday July 30th, Company 48 was dispatched for a vehicle fire reported to be on a SEPTA Bus on Hog Island Rd. While enroute PD arrived on location and confirmed the reports of the SEPTA Bus well involved. Crews arrived stretched an 1 3/4" hand line and began the initial suppression operations, R48 also responded and assisted with suppression and ventilation. Crews spent the rest of the day handling multiple EMS emergencies throughout the local and mutual aid areas as well. Later on that evening just after 2300 hrs company 48 was dispatched for another car fire at the intersection of Scott Way and S. Governor Printz Blvd. PD arrived on location and reported a passenger vehicle well involved. Crews once again initiated another swift and aggressive attack and made another quick knock on the fire. A very busy day for fires in the local and a job well done to all who came out to help!
