Bradford Firefighters

At 0451 this morning City Firefighters were dispatched to a Miller St. residence for a structure fire. Captain 1-20(Kloss) arrived on scene to find smoke pushing from the attic on the “C” side of the 2 story home. 

At that time a second alarm assignment was requested bringing all off duty firefighters to the scene. The already evacuated occupants advised Captain 1-20 that the fire was in the attic. With that information and what was visible from the exterior he advised his crews to take the gable vent on the “A” side and put water on the fire. 

As additional man power arrived on scene an interior attack crew was almost simultaneously sent to the second division as another crew was sent to the roof to open up for ventilation. The interior crew was met with high heat and significant fire after pulling the ceiling below the fire. Water was put on the fire quickly bringing it under control. 

With extensive overhaul to follow all equipment and man power remained on scene for several hours. City Firefighters were assisted on scene by City Police and DPW. Bradford Township Volunteer Fire Department held the RIT assignment. Derrick City Volunteer Fire Department was placed on standby. The American Red Cross was called in to assist the occupants.
