At approximately 23:08 on 11/23, Flourtown, Station 6 responded along with Station 82 and 88 to the reports of a multiple car accident on Northbound Route 309 in the area of the Church Road (Route 73) overpass. In frigid temperatures Squad 6 pulled a 200 foot 1.75 line to extinguish a fully involved car fire on one of the vehicles involved in the accident. The crew also did a rapid, primary search of all the other vehicles involved and attempted to de-energize those still running. A snow squall had passed through the area just prior to the emergency call, but the cause of the accident is still under investigation, and is undetermined as of this posting.
