On April 18th at 07:01, Aetna was dispatched for an engine and ladder to assist Christiana Fire Company (3-6-12) on a working house fire at 107 Fox Drive.  Ladder 9 and Engine 9-3 (At Station 7) both made the response.  Units from Christiana arrived with fire showing from the residence and deployed attack lines.  Those crews were able to quickly knock down the bulk of the fire.  9-3 arrived at 07:20 followed by Ladder 9.  Both crews were sent to the 2nd floor to relieve the 1st in companies.  Both crews checked for hot spots and performed extensive overhaul.  Aetna crews operated on scene for just over an hour before clearing at 08:34.
