Engine 32 assisted the Norristown Fire Dept. at a fatal dwelling fire this morning on the 1000 block of Markley St. Numerous calls reporting a fire and entrapment were received by county emergency dispatch services, prompting Station 27's confirmed working fire procedures. Norristown units arrived to fire showing from the first floor with fire extending to the second. Upon arrival, the Engine's crew assisted with suppression, search and overhaul. The Engine and it's crew operated on scene for over two and a half hours before returning to Bridgeport.
Tragically, a 12 year old boy perished in the fire when he heroically went back into the residence to assist his father who had recently undergone surgery. A gofundme account has been setup in the boy's name to assist his family during this trying time. Please visit the link below to make a donation.
