This video posted by dtvfd9d0tcom was shot Sunday night on Philadelphia Street in West Manchester Township, Pennsylvania (York County). The video was shot by a member of the Dover Township VFD, Station 9. Prior to Engine 9-2′s arrival three people were brought to safety from the porch roof by the crew from Engine 5-1 (West Manchester).
Three people, including a small child and a young pregnant woman, had to be rescued from the porch roof of a burning West Manchester Township home Sunday night.
The woman and the child, who live at the 2595 W. Philadelphia St. home, were taken to York Hospital for observation, said Roy Gentzler, assistant chief with West Manchester Township Fire Dept.
Firefighters used a ladder to get to the people on the porch roof and guided the three residents to safety.
A cat alerted several residents to a fire at their West Manchester Township home – which was not equipped with smoke alarms – but then perished in the blaze, Fire Chief Dave Nichols said Monday.
“They owe their lives” to the cat, Nichols said.
Firefighters arrived at the home in less than two minutes after receiving the call at 11:02 p.m. Sunday and found that three residents – Jordan Rupp, 22; his girlfriend, Dani Kauffman, 20, and Kauffman’s 3-year-old son, Tristyn Kauffman – had escaped by climbing onto a roof, the chief said.
