Ladder 4 responded as part of the First Alarm Structure Assignment with Station 2 (Chinchilla) and Engine 28 (Justus) for the working structure fire in an abandoned house on Griffen Pond Road. Comm Center reported to Chief 2A that South Abington Police were on scene reporting heavy smoke coming from the rear of the structure. Engine 2-1 arrived and went to work knocking down the bulk of the fire with a preconnected hoseline. Ladder 4 arrived and was assigned to overhaul the fire room, while the crews from Engine 2 and Engine 28 stood by. With the fire extinguished and overhaul complete, command returned all companies. The fire started after embers from a nearby controlled burn were blown into the structure.
