Photos from this morning’s fire that consumed one of the former NVF buildings in Yorklyn. Hockessin and surrounding companies were dispatched to the reported fire at 3:07 AM this morning.

With smoke and fire visible from miles away, units arrived to find heavy fire conditions and exterior attack was initiated. Several units drafted from nearby creeks and ponds feeding 2 1/2” lines and master streams. The fire was declared under control in about 4 hours, but units remained on scene throughout the day to douse hotspots.

Units were sent back to the scene at 5:21pm for a larger flare up and remained on site through Thursday evening. Along with several New Castle County and Chester County, PA fire companies fighting the blaze, many companies were relocated to ‘back fill’ stations. This included companies from as far is Delaware County & Lancaster County PA.

So devastating. I used to ride by it daily. Glad no one was injured in the battle.

As a former volunteer member of Hockessin Fire Company - Station 19, always wondered what would happen if one of this buildings caught fire.

You are all amazing! Thank you!

Nice job and teamwork.

Amazing job by all.. 👌🏻

Bebe Carnwath this must have been it!

I grew up running around all of NVF's buildings. Very sad to see them go like this. Hope everyone is safe.

Did this start up again? Apparatus is flying that way but nothing is on Pulse Point.

Wonder what/how this started? I hope they release that information

Yes sounds suspicious, especially at 3 in the morning. Hope none of the fire fighters were hurt. Big thanks to them. I live up on yorklyn road and could see the orange glow in the sky. I knew it was big

Great effort and amazing teamwork this morning 👌🏻😁😁

Oh no..... 😞
