House Fire In Hilltown Township
August 26, 2019

On Monday evening, just after 7:30 PM, Tower 27 was dispatched with Station 59, Rescue 26, and Tanker 61 on Tactical Box 59-10 for the reported dwelling fire. Battalion 60 was the first to arrive on location and found fire showing from the A/B corner and confirmed dispatched reports of everyone being out of the house. Chief 59 arrived and assumed Silverdale command as Engine 59-1 dropped in to begin fire suppression. Tower 27 arrived and split their crew, throwing ground ladders to the dwelling and opening up the interior for the attack lines. After the bulk of the fire was knocked down, all crews worked multiple jobs to finish up. The fire was placed under control around 8:15 PM and is under investigation by the Bucks County Fire Marshal's Office.
