A blaze broke out inside a Philadelphia firehouse Friday morning and damaged emergency responders’ apparatus in Old City.
The fire broke out at the Philadelphia Fire Dept.’s facility at Fourth and Arch streets, which houses Engine 8 and Ladder 2, around 11:45 a.m.
A FOX 29 News camera on the ground captured the initial response of firefighters, and even a blast aboard an ambulance in one of the bays.
Officials are investigating what caused a medic unit to catch fire in an Old City fire station this morning, heavily damaging the ambulance and fire house.
A medic parked in the bay of the firehouse at 4th and Arch streets caught on fire shortly before 11:40 a.m. Though the blaze resulted in heavy smoke and fire, it was put under control quickly, officials said, and there were no injuries.
The interior of the firehouse also sustained damage, leaving the station’s overhead doors inoperable, he said.
The station will be out of service for the time being.
