AFC Crew Responds to Upper Moreland Apartment Fire
On April 8th, 2021 at 10:45am crews were dispatched to assist Station 10 (Willow Grove Fire Company) at an apartment fire on Fitzwatertown Road. Battalion 381 arrived on scene and advised there was smoke coming from the front door. Ladder 100 arrived shortly after Quint 10 and Ladder 15 (Horsham Fire Company), quickly going in service providing forcible entry into the apartments on either side of the fire unit to ensure the fire was not extending. After the fire was extinguished, crews provided ventilation assistance, remaining on scene for about 2 hours.
This incident hit close to home, as the home on fire was owned by a Willow Grove Fire Company member. The family lost most of their belongings, and a GoFundMe has been set up to assist as they look to rebuild: Help the Williams family after house fire
