On June 13, 2022 at 16:50 hours, Delaware City Fire Company and mutual aid companies were dispatched to the 300 block of Treetop Circle in Sunset Meadows for a residential fire. Crews arrived within 6 minutes of the dispatch to find a working basement fire in a large, two-story, single family dwelling. Squad 15 (A/C Sands) advanced an attack line into the home through thick, black smoke, quickly locating and extinguishing the fire. Simultaneously searches were performed by Quint 15 (Captain Stamper) and Ladder 12, which proved negative. The fire was placed under control less than 10 minutes after arrival thanks to the quick fire attack. Working smoke alarms alerted the occupants who were quickly able to exit the home. There were no civilian or fire service injuries. The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the fire and Chief MacKenzie had Delaware City Command.
