At 07:01 hours this morning your Plymouth Fire Company No. 1 (Montco 43) volunteers were dispatched to assist the Conshohocken Fire Company No. 2 at the WSFS Bank on the 500 block of Fayette Street for a reported building fire.

First arriving CFD units found a heavy smoke condition inside the bank and the working fire dispatch was requested bringing in further mutual aid from surrounding companies. Squirt 43 with a crew of 4, Deputy Chief 43 and Chief 43 made the response and arrived as the 2nd due engine company.
