Chalfont fire fighters help Plumsteadville Fire Co
Thursday, April 1, 2010 14:30
Chalfont fire company was dispatched on box 24-40 at 14:39. Engine 34-1 (LT. Bair) responded to help with man power due to the extreme clutter of the house. Engine 34-1 crew helped with salvage and overhaul of the large amount of clutter that was hoarded from the homeowner. Engine 34-1 was cleared at 18:00. (Fire Chief Brian DuBree said firefighters had to contend with clutter that "filled rooms from floor to ceiling" in the two-story Colonial on Split Log Drive. "It is a very nice house from the outside, but the homeowner was a hoarder and the amount of stuff inside the house made it difficult for my firefighters," said DuBree. He pointed to a large pile of clothing and boxes on the front lawn of the home. "That's just 1/16th of what we found in each room of the house," said the chief. DuBree said the fire stated shortly after 2:30 p.m. in a bedroom on the second floor. The homeowner and her dog were out of the home when firefighters arrived. He said that crews tried to enter the house through the front door but couldn't get it to open because of the number of items piled behind it."We actually had to remove the door," said DuBree. Because of the clutter, firefighters could not get around and DuBree ordered them out of the structure. "It became a safety issue for my crews," he said. One Plumsteadville firefighter was cut by flying glass. DuBree said he was treated for a head wound at the scene and went back to battle the blaze. The chief called in neighboring companies to help fight the fire from the outside. Asked if he had encountered a problem with hoarding before, DuBree said "nothing this bad." "It didn't allow us do our job," said the chief. The cause of fire is under investigation by the Bucks County Fire Marshal's Office. Among the companies that assisted Plumsteadville were Hilltown, Point Pleasant, Midway, Doylestown, Dublin and Chalfont.) (Intelligencer4-1-2010)
