The fire has now spread from the construction site of Stables At Millennium to Riverwalk At Millennium. These photos were all taken on August 13, 2008. Apartments that minutes earlier were the homes of hundreds of people have now begun to be destroyed.
According to the Gladwyne Fire Company, the “members assisted with multiple assignments [including] … cutting a trench cut in one of the building roofs to help stop the fire from consuming the rest of the building. Gladwyne crews remained on scene until just before midnight and the Air Light Unit remained on scene with a limited crew until sunrise the next morning.”
Fire fighters from Conshohocken, throughout the Freedom Valley, and beyond fought this fire.
The next news column will detail the fire fight as darkness spread over Conshohocken.
