Shortly before 7:40pm the Fire Division of RFD was dispatched to the 400 block of 1st Avenue in Royersford Borough for a reported building fire. Also dispatched to assist was the Liberty Fire Company & Trappe Fire Company. Royersford Police Department and Chief 98 (Wezel) arrived to find smoke coming from the building and upgraded the response to a confirmed building fire bringing the EMS Division to the scene as well as Linfield Fire Department, Limerick Fire Department, and Skippack Fire Company for the Rapid Intervention Team (R.I.T.)

Initial crews quickly connected to the Fire Department Connections of the sprinkler system to help boost the effectiveness of the system. Along with forcing entry to the rear of the building and deploying hand lines to attack the fire entry crews found a small fire in the Manufacturing area of the building. The fire was being held in check by the sprinkler system and crews extinguished the fire and controlled the electrical circuits that were involved. Once the fire was extinguished crews continued to control the sprinkler system and PECO was able to de-energize the building.

Despite various chemicals inside the building the public was never in any danger of being exposed to a hazardous material. A quick response to develop an aggressive attack plan and training with our mutual aid partners again pays dividends when it counts.
