On July 9th at 13:30 Aetna, along with Christiana Fire Company (3-6-12) and Mill Creek Fire Company (2-21), was dispatched for a house fire at 108 Cypress Drive.  Engine 8-2 arrived at 13:39 and reported smoke showing from the roof.  This added Belvedere Fire Company (30) for the RIT and NCC EMS units Medic 9 and ALS 16 to the response.  8-2 established a supply line and placed a 1 3/4" hand line in service.  Engine 12-6 and Ladder 12 were next to arrive.  Those crews began searching the residence, laddering the building, and placed a back up hand line in service.  Interior crews found the fire confined to a bathroom on the 2nd floor, and it was quickly extinguished.  Additional crews assisted with ventilation and overhaul.  Deputy 8 placed the incident under control at 13:58 and all units were clear at 14:36. 

Units On Scene: 7-4, Squrt 7, 8-2, A-10, Ladder 12, 12-6, 21-6, Squrt 30, Medic 9, ALS 16, and Delaware State Fire Marshal
