In addition to Radnor FThe upgrade from Berwyn Fire Company brought automatic mutual aid resources from the King of Prussia Volunteer Fire Company, Valley Forge Volunteer Fire Company and Lafayette Ambulance.

First arriving Berwyn Fire Company personnel were met with smoke showing from the 3rd floor and roof of a 3-story apartment building. The crews of Berwyn Engine 2-1 and King of Prussia Engine 47-1 began to extinguish the flames, while additional personnel with Berwyn Tower 2 and Radnor Quint 15 worked in tandem performing various tasks. This included cutting a ventilation hole in the roof to remove heat and smoke from the structure.

The Tredyffrin Township Police Department assisted with evacuating residents from the 1st and 2nd floors of the building. They also provided overall incident support and scene control throughout the incident.
