Initial reports at 11:57 am of heavy smoke coming from the basement of 1250 Pinetown Road in Upper Dublin had Fort Washington Fire Company and units from Roslyn Fire Company, Oreland, and Flourtown Fire Company respond. Flourtown Fire Company’ Squad 6 was initially dispatched as a FAST unit and Engine 6 and Utility 6 were requested for additional resources and personnel. The fire advanced from the basement to all three floors of the large home and personnel were sent to the roof to open up particularly hot spots.
