On March 24, 2013 a dwelling fire was reported in Pennsauken on the 1700 block of 41st street around 6 p.m.

Command 1100 reported a dwelling, garage and boat heavily involved with fire already extending into the exposure dwelling. The All Hands box was struck.

Companies secured water supplies and went into operation with multiple hand lines.  Command reported heavy fire conditions on the 2nd floors of both dwellings.  The Truck Company went into operation with the Ladder Pipe with fire through the roof in the rear of one of the dwellings.

After an aggressive interior attack in both dwellings, firefighters were pulled from the buildings due to fire conditions worsening. 

Crews placed multiple 2 ½” lines, the Deck gun and Ladder Pipe in operation in a defensive operation. 

The fire was knocked down and placed under control around the 1 hour mark.  Multiple cats were rescued from a dwelling.

Both dwellings were occupied.  Neighbors alerted the family that his house was on fire.   

A total of four houses were damaged in the fire.  The exposures in the rear suffered heat damage and direct flame contact damage.

Press reports indicated the fire started in the unattached garage and spread to the dwellings.

No firefighter injuries were reported.
