At 1741 hours Chester County alerted Avondale, Kennett, Longwood, Po-Mar-Lin, and Hockessin for a commercial structure fire at 739 W. Cypress St. in New Garden Township. Rescue-Engine 19 was already on the street enroute to a citizen assist and immediately redirected to the fire, with the Chief also responding. The Deputy Chief from Avondale arrived with smoke showing from two sides of a strip mall and reported a working attic fire. At about 1755 a special call was made for two additional truck companies. Ladder 19 responded on the special call. At 1803 hours a ladder and rescue-pumper from Mill Creek Fire Co. were added to the growing incident which shortly thereafter went to a third alarm.
RE19's crew went in service in one of the stores in the strip mall. L19 arrived and sent their crew to the manpower pool to rotate in to relieve the first-in crews. Due to 5" supply hoses blocking access to the north side of the building L19 relocated to W. State St. and set up the aerial to the end of the buidling where crews were in the process of opening the roof to locate and extinguish fire and relieve some of the heat pushing down on the interior crews.
Hockessin units operated at this incident for slightly under two hours. An engine from Minquas Fire Co. (Newport) relocated to Hockessin and handled another incident in our district in the interim. An ambulance from Belvedere Fire Co. also relocated to Hockessin account multiple ambulances from the area being committed to the fire.
Ladder 19's operator was able to take a couple photos after the fire was knocked and overhaul was in progress. Links to more photos of the incident will be added to the comments below shortly. ... See MoreSee Less

We would like to take a moment to express appreciation to the New Castle County Emergency Communications Center for the job they did fielding countless calls this afternoon and evening. The 25-ish calls Hockessin responded to were only a small part of the total for NCC. The calltakers and dispatchers at Fireboard were phenomenal throughout under trying circumstances - job well done! ... See MoreSee Less
