Crews stretched and 1" 3/4 hand line and command requested two additional engines (Ridley Park and Prospect Park) to assist with water supply.

On Sunday Jaunary 11th just before 1500 hours Company 48 was dispatched to assist Company 12 on a building fire on E 9th St. Police arrived on location with smoke showing on Division 2 of a 2 Story MOD. First alarm assignment was then dispatched which brought 07(Ridley Park), 62(Vauclain), 67(Woodlyn), R.I.T 08(Prospect Park) to the scene. Engine 12-1 arrived and secured a water supply and Ladder 48 arrived and went into truck company operations. L48 crews threw ground ladders to division 2 and also performed a search. Crews from 62 preformed a secondary search. All searches were negative and L48 crews found the fire in the A/D corner of the building and extinguished the fire with a pressurized water extinguisher. E12-1 crews pulled a 1 ¾ attack line and began and overhaul operations. Crews were then released by 12 command shortly after. Great Job by all crews and thank you to all who came out to help!
