Vehicle Fire with Extension

posted Jan 6, 2016, 8:06 AM by Jeffrey Sands, Assistant Chief 7-8B
While Aetna units were operating at a motor vehicle collision with entrapment in the southern portion of our district, a vehicle fire was dispatched in the 800 block of Leeds Lane in the Devon development of Newark.  Engine 8-2 arrived on scene to find a vehicle fire with extension to the residence and requested a working alarm assignment.  Crews were able to make a quick stop on the fire preventing serious damage to the residence and the assignment was quickly scaled back.  The Delaware State Fire Marshal's office is handling the investigation.  Photos courtesy of Mike Dao.
