On April 24th at 19:40, Aetna was dispatched for an engine to assist Singerly Fire Company of Elkton (Cecil County 3-13-14) on a house fire at 11 Willow Court.  Engine 7-4 responded right after dispatch and was the first unit to arrive at 19:46.  They found smoke showing from the 2nd floor of a end of the row townhouse.  A 5 inch supply line was laid from the hydrant, and the crew advanced a 1-3/4 inch hand line into the structure.  7-4's crew found a bedroom fire on the 2nd floor and extinguished the same.  While they were operating inside, command requested an additional rescue to the scene.  Rescue 8 was dispatched and responded to assist as well.  Both units operated on scene until they were released at 21:30.
