While conducting our monthly equipment maintenance, we were dispatched for the building fire in the unit block of State Road at the Old State Tavern. Rose Tree Fire Company 73-9 (Trevelino) and Quint 73 (Capt. Famiglio) responded, followed by Rescue 73 and Engine 73. Assisting us were Company 23 (Media Fire and Ladder #1) Tower 44 (Springfield Fire Company), and RIT 53 (Broomall Fire Company).
While en route, units received updates of a smoke condition in the building and a possible fire in the walls. Upon arrival, Quint 73 stretched a 1.75″ hoseline while Squrt 23 (Media) secured a water source. A small fire was located in an exterior wall and quickly extinguished.
