Tonight Ladder 65 participated in a large volume water supply drill at Sunoco Logistics in the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex. The purpose of the drill was to display the large water capabilities to the surrounding fire departments in case there were an incident at their facility. Some of the equipment on display was their two "super pumpers" capable of flowing 6350 GPM each, two pipeline units which carry a combined 1 mile of 12 inch hose, and several of their smaller tactical units. Once everyone was set up, they were able to successfully flow 3 ladder pipes, a squrt, and 5 engine companies without any issue. Thanks to Sunoco for the invite! #laddercō #gardencityfire

Initial reports were of a fire on the second floor. Engine 65-1 with 5 arrived to find a 2 story single family with smoke showing from the 2nd floor. Crews placed and line in service and located a bedroom fire on division 2 on the Charlie side of the building. The fire was quickly knocked and crews started opening up. Extension was found in the attic area and that was extinguished. The 2nd alarm was called due to limited man power.
