At 1523 hours on January 8, 2017, Aetna along with mutual aid from Christiana Fire, and Mill Creek Fire Company - Stations 2&21, were dispatched to the 900 block of Village Drive in the Village II Apartments for a multi-residential structure fire. Crews arrived on scene to find smoke showing from a 2 story middle-of-the-row townhouse and a fire in the attic. This added Minquas of Newport Vol. Fire Co. and New Castle County Paramedics to the response. The fire was quickly extinguished but crews remained on scene for 2 hours performing overhaul and checking for extension. There were no injuries. The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating and Deputy Chief Schall had Newark Command.  This marked the third working alarm for Aetna in as many days.
