Last night around 6pm E413 and S414 were alerted, along with surrounding stations, for a house fire off of Cherry Hill Rd in Station 56’s area. E56 arrived first with smoke showing from the house. E413 arrived second hooked up to a hydrant and took a handline into the house. S414 arrived shortly after and set up fans and assisted with other operations. In the end it was a small kitchen fire — two birds and a cat were rescued, as well. Units were on scene for approximately 45 minutes.
