Gladwyne Fire Company assisted Ardmore Fire Company on a 2 alarm house fire in the Haverford section of the township. Multiple 911 callers reported a house on fire with explosions. Chief 25 arrived to a large 3 story mansion with heavy fire showing, requested dual supply lines. Engine 24 responded with 8 firefighters and laid a supply line to Engine 25 and stretched a second line. Ladder 24 laddered the building and opened the roof for crews inside. Fire spread from a well involved garage up all three floors and into the attic as well. With heavy fire conditions throughout a second alarm was requested. Crews made an aggressive interior attack and kept the bulk of the fire to addition of the home. All occupants safely evacuated the home. Thanks to Plymouth Fire Company No. 1 (Montco 43) for covering the local area late into the morning.
