Rescue 19 was dispatched as the RIT (Rapid Intervention Team) for the building fire on Box 15-2, 5071 Grundy Way, Buckingham Twp. Chief 5 had heavy fire on arrival, and Midway crews got a fast knock down on the fire. The crew from Rescue 19 monitored fireground safety and was ready to enter for firefighter rescue if needed. They were later placed in service to assist with extensive overhaul. This was the second working fire with Midway in 48 hours, as Ladder 79, Engine and Canteen 19 responded to 3783 E Brandon Way on 7/2.
