At 2:18PM Station 11, Engine 13, Engine 22, Engine & Ladder 25, and Ladder 17 where dispatched for a mobile home fire in the area of Walnut Street in the community of Holly Hill Trailer Park. Engine 13-5 with a crew of 6 and Engine 11-3 with a crew of 4 made the response within a minute of dispatch. Engine 13-5 secured a water supply taking the first due engine and went on location with smoke showing. Engine 11-3 arrived seconds after taking the second due engine an ran a second line from engine 13-5. Engine 11-3's officer (Captain M. Fanelli) established the Brandywine Command. Interior crews reported to command that they had hoarding conditions and a emergency alert was alerted to use caution. The bulk of the fire was knocked within 15mins of arrival and the scene was placed under control with extensive overhaul. All occupants were reported out of the trailer and were confirmed by searches from the special services. The scene was turned over to the Fire Marshal and home owner after 90 minutes. Thank you to Squad 12, 16-6, and Ladder 17 for covering the Nor-Del within the time of the fire. The cover up companies where alerted for a second incident in our district during the fire for a high life hazard box. Assistant Chief 11-8C (Pearce) had the command and held it to squad 12 and ladder 17 with the alarm being set off by contractors.
