At 16:11 hours Stations 25 (Ardmore) and 23 (Bryn Mawr) were dispatched to the 130 Simpson Road for a dwelling fire. Lower Merion police arrived and reported smoke showing, which prompted the LM working fire dispatch. Chief 25 assumed command and reported a fire in the second floor bedroom of a three story twin.
Engine 25 stretched a line to the second floor and made quick work of the fire. Ladder 25 & 23 crews laddered the building, completed a primary search, and ventilated. Engine 23's crew stretched a second line to the third floor to check for extension. All searches were negative and there were no injuries to any residents or firefighters. Great job and teamwork by all Lower Merion firefighters on an extremely hot summer afternoon!
Units on Scene: Station 25, Station 23, Engine 21, Engine 24 (RIT), Air 24, Squad 22, Engine 28, Engine 26, Lower Merion Police, Narberth Ambulance
