Fire damages 2 houses in Chester

Saturday, August 17, 2013

Firefighters in Chester, Delaware County had their hands full early Saturday morning battling a 2-alarm fire.

Crews were called out to the 500 block of East 10th Street around 5:19 a.m. after getting several 9-1-1 calls reporting a house on fire.

Firefighters soon discovered a twin home on fire and quickly went to work battling the intense flames. However, water pressure problems caused firefighters to strike a 2nd alarm as the flames threatened neighboring homes.

Crews managed to get the fire under control. It was later learned both homes damaged by the fire were vacant.

There are no reported injuries and no word yet on what sparked the blaze.
