Around 10:30pm on Sunday May 3rd, The LCFC was dispatched to a house fire on St. Anthony's Lane. The West Vincent Police Department was the first on the scene. Upon their arrival they notified that the house was fully involved. Crews rolled up very shortly after and started exterior operations. With the help of neighboring fire companies water supply was set up along with multiple hose lines and master streams to extinguish the fire. A Tanker task force was called in which brought a number of tankers and pumper/tankers to help get more water to the scene. Sadly the whole house was lost. Fortunately no one was home at the time of the fire. One good thing however happened on this night. One dog was able to uplift a gloomy scene to one of joy and amazement. The family dog, Bonnie, who is 13 years old was in the house when the fire broke out. Bonnie was trapped in the house with such immense heat that nobody thought she would be found alive. When starting overhaul operations and heavy equipment brought in to move parts of the collapsed structure a dog came running to the crew. Bonnie was alive! This fire was a large one and crews were onscene till the early morning hours Monday. Units Onscene: Station 73 (Ludwigs Corner Fire Company) Chief 73 (R. Hahn), Deputy 73 (J. Kimes), Safety 73 (M.
