Glenside Fire Company On the Scene at Wyncote Fire

Yesterday afternoon the Glenside Fire Company responded to a reported fire on Limekiln Pike in Wyncote, right where where Rt. 309 and Limekiln Pike meet.  A motorist who was driving by, posted a raw video of the fire on Facebook.

Just passed the house fire on 309 across from The towers in that little pocket neighborhood by Cedarbrook. I am praying for these people I wish we could find out who they are to help them….Edit*if anyone knows who are the residents living there please let me know we want to start a crowd funding to help them through this devastation.

After arriving on the scene, Glenside Fire Company reported that the Engine 1’s crew went to the second floor trying to control the fire when part of the roof collapsed, forcing them to withdraw. They then used Ladder 400’s aerial waterway to help manage the fire in the attic and roof area.  The crews eventually were able to extinguish the fire and all residents were able to leave building safely.
