Apartment Fire

At 2038hrs the PFD was dispatched to 714 West Mahantongo Street for a reported apartment building fire with possible entrapment. First arriving personnel assisted with the removal of the patients from the apartment and reported heavy smoke in the apartment. Crews found a stove fire from oil left on the stove and put the remainder of the fire out and checked for extension. Both patients were transferred from the scene to medical helicopters. Crews remained on scene for approximately 45min until all the smoke was cleared from the building. Photos courtesy of Yorkville Hose Facebook.
