PHILADELPHIA – April 13, 2012 (WPVI) — Philadelphia Fire crews battled a two alarm fire in Port Richmond. Fire broke out around 7:30pm Friday night at a vacant warehouse in the 2100 block of East Allegheny Avenue in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. First responders arrived to heavy fire on the first floor.  A second alarm was struck around 7:45pm. 

Ladder 10 was one of the companies responding.  While most of the members memorialized one of their own at funeral services Friday night, other crew members worked to extinguish the fire, helping to bring it under control within 30 minutes. There have been no reports of injuries. Fire officials confirm that there was a 3-alarm fire in the same building last year. The fire is currently under investigation.

    In our professions, the work never stops.

    The location is in my old district (the 24th). Looks like it’s across the street from the A-Plus Mini Market – the only store open in my sector when I worked the overnight tour.

    Did they catch the perp that was stealing from the post-funeral get together for the families and friends of the firefighters?

    I saw that on TV and went BALLISTIC (from Indiana, no less)!
    It made NATIONAL news (FOX).

    This sure isn’t the same planet I remember growinmg UP on…that’s for sure.

    Roll safe out there…all fo you.
