Darby Fire Company No. 1 firefighters responded to a building fire at about 6:00 a.m. Saturday April 13, 2013. Crews arrived to find fire showing from the front of a 100 X 200 one-story commercial structure. The building was used as a market and had three full-size billboards on the roof. Due to the heavy fire involvement and collapse concerns the attack went defensive and a 2nd alarm was quickly reque.

Crews did a trench cut of the roof of the D exposure a cleaners. Houses across the alley on the C side were evacuated. Crews operated multiple elevated master streams, deck guns, portable monitors and hand lines. Just after 12:48 elapsed video time the C side suffers a major collapse. Crews were evacuated from the exposure and the 3rd alarm was requested. At the height of the fire, nine elevated master streams (two engine-mounted and five portable monitors) were operating. Crews were involved in several long LDH relays including one from the Darby Creek about 1500 feet away.

At least one firefighter was injured. Firefighters were on scene for an extended period of time, and an excavator was called in to demolish the building about seven hours after dispatch.
