At approximately 3 PM on November 25, 2012, Flourtown Fire Company was dispatched along with Barren Hill Fire Company to a fire that began in the garage on the 300 block of Stenton Avenue and spread to the roof of the residence on the Sunday afternoon. Upon arrival the fire was immediately escalated and companies from Wyndmoor, Spring Mill, Centre Square, Harmonville, Glenside and several other were dispatched for additional resources. Engine 6 arrived at the home and went into service with 2.5 inch hose line and additional hose lines once a water source was established. Addition units checked for extension into the home and other areas of the property. The cedar shingle roof added to the fire load and the three car garage and its contents were a loss, but the fire was halted from extending further into the home.

Flourtown Fire Company will hold its annual Fire Prevention Open House on:
Friday, October 5, 2012
6 PM – 8 PM
At the firehouse, 1526 Bethlehem Pike, Flourtown, PA 19031
Scooby Doo, along with all your volunteer firefighter and fire police will be on hand to demonstrate equipment, answer questions and discuss how your family can practice fire safety.
It is important to have a home fire escape plan that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your first escape route is blocked by smoke or flames? That’s why having two ways out is such a key part of your plan. This year’s theme,“Have 2 Ways Out!”, focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice.
