The Radnor Fire Company set this specially built house on fire Saturday to show how quickly a house can go up in flames.
The message: get out of a burning house an have a plan and don't try to fight a fire yourself before calling 9-1-1.
This firefighting demonstration in the post office parking lot across from the Radnor Fire Company showed how a fire progress quickly from the time it ignites to the time it can engulf a building or a room.
Volunteers from Radnor and East Whiteland Fire Companies raced to the scene from several blocks away and used water from the East Whiteland engone's to demonstrate what happens in a fire that happens in a building located far from a fire hydrant, such as the four car garage fire on Darby Paoli Road last month.
As part of the evening, Berwyn firefighters also demonstrated how they pull accident victims from mangled cars.
