Structure Fire with Entrapment Assist In Franklin Park
We were dispatched with the Franklin Park VFC to assist with a residential structure fire on Cole Road in Franklin Park Borough on December 28, 2020, at 1:58 pm. Initial reports of someone trapped inside were unconfirmed as neighbors tried to determine if the resident was home. Our Engine 1 arrived on the scene at 2:06 pm, and neighbors had confirmed that the occupant was trapped. The acting officer from Engine 1 made an entry through the front door to pull the trapped occupant outside while the driver deployed a fire hose. The engine crew then started to knock down the fire. Units from Franklin Park and other mutual aid companies arrived quickly to get the fire under control.
