It's been a busy week for the EVFD! On Monday, units were dispatched to the 400 block of Seddon Ave in North Braddock for a report of a house on fire. Just having cleared a bathroom fire in the Propel High School in Braddock Hills, 137 Engine responded immediately with a full crew, followed shortly by 137 Rescue and Squad. Units arrived to find heavy fire from the front of the house and were able to get a quick knock on the fire.
Tonight, units were dispatched to the 2100 block of Monongahela Ave in Swissvale for a report of an air conditioner unit on fire that spread to the rest of the house. 137 Engine arrived shortly behind 278 Engine, who found the rear of the structure on fire. Crews were able to get another quick knock on the fire and subsequently stop the fire from spreading up the rear wall space; the attached pictures show the rear of the structure.
