PHILLY FIREFIGHTERS HURT BATTLING BLAZE

In case people forgot, fighting fires is dangerous business, especially when resources are scarce, and fire stations are being browned out.

It appears that the injuries are not life threatening. That’s definitely good news.

Two firefighters and a resident were injured Monday afternoon in a Northeast Philadelphia house fire, the fire commissioner said. The blaze was reported at 1:35 p.m. in the 3600 block of Genesee Drive in the city’s Parkwood section, said Commissioner Lloyd Ayers. The fire was placed under control 53 minutes later.

The firefighters and resident, a woman, were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, Ayers said. The fire marshal was called to the scene because fireworks may have been stored in the house. (LINK)

Storing fireworks at home. Never a good idea, kids.

    Always sad to hear about good PFD troopers injured in the line of work.
    You roll safe out there.
