On Tuesday afternoon the Modena Fire Company was dispatched at 1531 for an engine to assist the Thorndale Fire Company on an reported house fire.

Battalion 37 (Corle) was first to arrive reporting smoke showing and establishing foundry Street command. A short time late upgrading the assignment to possible entrapment. Command was then passed to Chief 41.

Engine 37-1 arrived and it crew went to work assisting city and VA crews with search and fire suppression.

Crews from 38 check the exposer building which was negative.

The fire was brought under control a short time later.

Modena crews cleared the scene at 1700

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
