Most volunteer fire companies have a long and colorful history. This is also true of the East Lansdowne Fire Company. The newly formed Borough of East Lansdowne was faced with many important decisions in June of 1911, one being how to provide fire protection for the 186 houses already in existence in the borough.

At 7 am this morning, the company was dispatched to the unit block of South Lansdowne Ave in Co. 19's local for the Building Fire. Shortly after the initial dispatch, the assignment was upgraded to a working building fire with entrainment as Engine 19 arrived with heavy smoke showing from the second floor and reports of subjects trapped on the third floor. Engine 19's first-in crew found heavy fire second floor and 19 command called for the second alarm. Crews got a handle on the fire quickly and it was under control in less than an hour. Engine 24 crew was on scene for about 1.5 hours. (photos credit Lans. Fire Co).

Around 1:40 am today, the building fire assignment was dispatched to the 100 Block of Oak Ave in our local. The caller reported smoke in their residence from an unknown source. Truck 19 (Lansdowne) arrived FDT and reported smoke from a 3 story twin. Engine 4 (Darby) arrived soon after and assumed the FDE assignment. Heavy smoke was found coming from the basement and first floor of the adjoing twin. Crews stretched a line from E4 and a second line from Engine 24 as searches were conducted with negative results. Interior crews located and knocked the bulk of the fire found in the basement. The fire was placed under control at the 40 minute mark as crews continued overhaul. There were no injuries reported. Thank you to our mutual aid companies for your assistance. Oneninetruck Yeadon Fire Company Darby Fire Co. # 1 Station 4 Garrettford-Drexel Hill Fire Co.

2 alarm fire in the Borough 6/3/20. On Wednesday, around 9:40am, Co.’s 24,19,16,TK4, RIT 20 and Mercy EMS units were dispatched for a house fire on the 200 Block of Melrose in town. Engine 16 (Yeadon) arrived FDE reporting smoke showing and went in service with a handline through the front door for attack and primary searches. E24 arrived SDE, followed by Truck 4 (Darby), Truck 19 (Lansdowne) and RIT 20 (Garretford Drexel Hill). Incident Command was established by Asst. 24 - J. Carr (old guy), who reported heavy smoke conditions on divisions 2 & 3 on the A/D side of a 3 story single home. Interior crews struggled to advance the line due to an extreme amount of debris blocking access throughout. A special call was made for an extra engine company from Co 36 (Cardington Stonehurst). Truck companies were able to get the mains through the trees and ladders to AD/AB corners and began ventilation and searches on divisions 2 and 3. Crews continued to struggle with debris blocking the access to the upper divisions. As the smoke conditions worsened, command called for the 2nd alarm and second RIT at the 20-minute mark. First-in crews were able to get a much-needed break as they were relieved by the 2nd alarm companies. The fire had already extended to the attic and roof areas from behind large amounts of debris and up through the balloon frame voids. Crews fought hard to clear the way and were able to get ahead of and get a knock on the bulk of the fire. The fire was placed under control at 10:29 and extensive overhaul continued for over an hour. There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians. Companies began clearing the scene around 11:15am
Second Alarm Co.’s were: 3 -Clifton Heights, RIT 56 -Manoa, 9 -Sharon Hill, 33 -Collingdale, 26 -Highland Park, Upper Darby Professional Fire Fighters and additional ALS and BLS units from Mercy Fitzgerald EMS. Numerous other departments sent units to cover for the companies who were operating on this incident.

The Incident Commander wishes to commend all the crews who worked extremely hard to contain the fire despite some incredible obstacles. There are many added dangers associated with these fires (excessive structural load, blocked egress etc.) which often result in retreat / defensive tactics out of an abundance of caution for firefighter safety. The effort and professionalism that was displayed during this incident allowed the IC to remain confident that continued interior operations were succeeding and being carried out safely. Despite vertical extension behind obstructions and voids before units arrived, the extra effort to carry out a very physical attack resulted in the fire being cut-off before it could extend towards the rear of the home. Thanks go out to all the Fire, EMS, Dispatchers, Cover Companies and all the other support agencies for your assistance!

Yesterday, around 5:20 the company was dispatched to the area of Essex and Maple in Lansdowne for a reported house fire. As Engine 24 responded, the assignment was upgraded to a working fire with possible entrapment. Engine 24 arrived soon after, assumed second due engine and secured a hydrant to supply E19 (Lansdowne). First-in crews encountered heavy fire on all floors in the rear of a 3 story twin. E24 crew stretched and setup the Blitzfire line in the rear of the primary fire building. The conditions grew worse in the balloon-frame dwelling and extended into the adjoining twin. Additional alarms were struck to bring in extra resources to battle the fire. Numerous companies operated for over 2 hours to bring the fire under control. Engine 24 was released from the scene around 9:30. Oneninetruck
