At 9am, Ladder 18 was alerted to assist Christiana on a Multi-Residential Gas odor. While turning into the neighborhood, the incident was placed under control and the Ladder went available. While returning, Holloway Terrace was alerted to a multiple vehicle fire off Lambson Lane. Ladder 18 and Engine 20-4 arrived to find 7 vehicles on fire in a storage lot. The crew operated at that scene for over an hour before clearing.
Upon returning, Fireboard dispatched a Motor Vehicle Accident with Entrapment on Interstate 95 at the Interstate 295 offramp. Ladder 18 made the response and arrived alongside Engine 223. The crews went to work extricating one trapped patient and then providing EMS care until the arrival of EMS units.
While returning from the interstate, the crew of the ladder also handled a heater backfire.
