DC-34 (Marino) arrived and confirmed the report of smoke showing and additionally reported fire in the kitchen on Side C of the residence. Ladder and Lieut. 74 (Guinan) responded first and were given orders to go in service with a can and try to locate the fire. Engine 34 and Lieut. 74-1 (Kapscandi), as well as Engine 54 and Battalion 34 (Bintner), arrived on scene and deployed handlines from L-74 to make an interior attack. Crews encountered very challenging interior conditions and had a tough time making entry to the dwelling to locate the fire. Incident was placed under control around the hour and a half mark due to the difficulty of locating the fire and access throughout the dwelling. Command was held by C-34 (McGuire) and DC-34 (Marino). Homeowners were taken to Doylestown Hospital for smoke inhalation, no other injuries reported.
