Morning Mess
Date: 01.31.2014

This morning, we were called in to assist the Merion Fire Co. of Ardmore on a vehicle fire with fuel spill. A construction truck was leaking fuel and caught fire. The truck had a auxiliary fuel tank in the rear containing diesel fuel, which also caught fire and leaked down the driveway. Special calls were made for Engine 26 (Narberth), Rescue 21 (Penn Wynne) and Rescue 22 (Belmont Hills). We assisted with deploying oil dry creating dykes to stop the flow of the gasoline and diesel mixture. The county haz mat team brought in booms, pads and additional absorbent materials to assist.
