Just before 8 pm Friday, Rescue 57 and Engine 574 were alerted to assist Willow Street Fire Company on a house fire on Hawthorne Circle in Providence Township. Engine 502 arrived with a one-story in the front, two-story rear (walk out basement) private dwelling with heavy smoke showing.
Rescue 57 and Engine 574 arrived with the Rescue crew setting up the RIT and the Engine crew assisting inside. The Rescue’s crew was pulled briefly to open the roof due to heat and the possibility of extension in the attic. The crew then went back to RIT for the remainder of the incident. Both crews assisted with ladders, lighting and overhaul. QFD Fire Police assisted at the house fire, and also had an additional call for a tree down blocking traffic on Solanco Road in Colerain Township. The Company was available in 2 hours.
