Barn: Jarrettown Rd

Battalion 88 and Chief 88 arrived with a barn fire in the 1700 block of Jarrettown Road.

Engine 88 laid a supply line from Heard Drive and deployed 2.5″ hose lines to knock down the fire. Engine 15-1 (Horsham) laid a secondary supply line from Tuckerstown Road to supply a ladder truck if needed.

A collapse zone was set up and shortly after our arrival, one of the walls of the barn collapsed. After the main fire was knocked down, Tower 500 (Roslyn) was able to position in front of the building and utilize their elevated master stream while being supplied by E15-1. Squad 10 (Willow Grove) stood by as RIT and Ladder 7 (Wissahickon) was also on scene along with Amber Ambulance and Upper Dublin PD.
