Station-7 (Wissahickon) was originally dispatched for the building at 10 Maple Ave. in Ambler Boro. 03/06/10
Chief-7 arrived on scene with a confirmed fire in the basement of a three story abandoned factory with limited access to the building. With that report, County radio dispatched Squad 6 as the RIT team.
Due to the condition of the property and building, crews were having a challenging time getting water to the area of the building where the fire was located. After this assessment of the conditions, Chief-7 struck the 2nd Alarm for manpower, which added Ladder-6 to the assignment to supplement Squad-6’s crew.
Crews cleared in approx. 3 hrs.
