On Tuesday April 23rd, Keystone Valley Fire Department was dispatched for Ladder 8 on the Working Fire Dispatch assisting the City of Coatesville with a working dwelling fire on Coates Street. Ladder 8 responded w/4 and arrived being assigned to assist with Fire Suppression and ventilation.

From DLN:

A two-alarm fire seriously damaged two unoccupied twin homes in the 600 block of Coates Street shortly before 10:30 Monday morning. Nobody was injured in the blaze.

Coatesville Fire Chief Gary Alderman said first arriving crews had fire shooting out the third floor windows of the home at 615 Coates St. when they arrived. The home backs up to a hill and power lines in the front created access issues for ladder trucks at the scene.

“Nobody was living in either home at the time of the fire,” said Alderman. “There had been an electrical fire in the home on the left back in November.”

“The second alarm was because of manpower issues,” Alderman said. “Normally on a single room and contents fire we can handle it with city units, but this is an old building and the fire got into the walls. It required extensive crews for overhaul.”
