Firefighters found heavy smoke and visible fire showing from a two story frame dwelling. Two 1 3/4″ lines were stretched to the side door to try to make an interior attack and search for the occupants. While fire fighters from Wenonah and Deptford went to the roof to ventilate the now heavily charged dwelling.
Firefighters were able to make entry to the rear part of the dwelling, beating back smoke and flames while making an interior search. The search turned out negative. The roof was now vented making it a little easier for fire fighters working inside but the fire had a firm grip forcing the members to back out numerous times.
