posted Jan 5, 2012, 3:14 PM by Charles Mitchell
On January 4th at 09:39 the stations were alerted, along with multiple other fire companies, to assist Christiana Fire Company (3-6-12) on a working building fire at 2400 Squirrel Drive in Fox Run Apartments.  First arriving units reported fire through the roof of a 3 story apartment building.  Engines 9-3 and 10-2 made the response to assist.  On their arrival both crews assisted with establishing a supply line for suppression operations in the rear of the fire building.  Crews then threw multiple ground ladders to rear of the exposure buildings on both sides of the original fire building.  The crews then relocated into the D exposure building to assist with checking for extension and overhaul.  Both crews operated for just over 2 hours before being released by command.

Units on scene: 9-3, 10-2
