High-Rise Condo Fire

An elderly woman died and at least one other person was hospitalized after a mid-afternoon high rise fire in Lower Merion Monday. The fire was reported just after 2:00 by a woman who said she was trapped in her bathroom by the blaze high up in the 191 Presidential condo tower.

Lower Merion Fire Chief Chas McGarvey got a team to the affected unit quickly but, given the size of the place, called for more help: "It's a very difficult fire, especially this time of day. We had a general alarm from the township, seven companies, as well as two outside companies from Delaware County, two fast teams, and two ambulance corps here as well as incident support team from Montgomery County."

The cause of the fire is being investigated, but Chief McGarvey says an oxygen bottle was present in the unit of the woman who died. Residents were allowed to reenter the building about 6 p.m. Responding Units: Engine 24 & Air 24, Stations 28, 22, 26, 21, 25, 23, Delco 15 (Radnor), Delco 53 (Broomall), Narberth Ambulance, Lower Merion Police and Llanerch EMS.
