On Monday night at 7:55 PM the Merion Fire Company responded to the 170 Lakeside Apartments for a report of an appliance fire.
The first arriving Deputy Chief requested the next company and the working fire upgrade due to heavy smoke in the 3 story apartment building.
The first arriving engine and Ladder crews stretched an 1 3/4" line to the basement and quickly handled two dryers that were on fire.
Companies were in service for about 1 hour.
There were no injuries to the 70 evacuated residents.
