Township Wide High-Rise Fire
Date: 06.14.2013

Late in the afternoon, Stations 28 (Union) and 22 (Belmont Hills) were dispatched to a building fire at Bala Plaza One on St. Asaph's Road. Due to the number of calls, County fire dispatch automatically dispatched the "Working Fire" procedure and an additional ladder (Engine 26, Ladder 26, Engine 24 (FAST) and Air 24. Upon arrival, Assistant 28 requested an additional ladder and FAST team bringing Ladder 21 and Rescue 21 to the scene. Soon after, the General Alarm was sounded bringing all township fire companies into the scene. Upon arrival, Ladder 21 placed the aerial ladder in service to the roof as the rescue's team stood by on the 6th floor in case a firefighter got hurt or trapped. As the fire was placed under control, we were released from current duties and reassigned to the 6th floor (Division 6) to ensure the fire did not spread to any offices and the smoke was clearing out. Great job to all involved in this resource intensive fire. Thanks to Llanerch Fire Company for providing an engine to cover our district.
