At 3:15 Friday afternoon, QFD, Refton Fire Company, Willow Street Fire Coand Lancaster EMS responded to the 200 block of Buttercup Drive in Providence Township (Sunset Estates) for a mobile home fire. Engine 574 arrived and laid a supply line from Pine Blvd. to the scene. The crew made entry, finding smoke conditions to the floor and after a quick search, located a fully involved clothes dryer. The nozzleman quickly knocked the fire down, walls and ceiling opened up and ventilation begun, bringng the incident under control within minutes.
One cat was located and removed form the residence, a little smoky but seemed to be OK. Crews removed the dryer, ventilated the smoke and cleaned up debris while QFD and assisting fire police controlled traffic in the area.
Thanks to everyone who responded and to Tom Amico for the photos. The Company was in service 1 hour.
