Firefighters rescued a family trapped on a roof after their house caught fire on the 900 block of Black Rock Road late Tuesday evening. The family crawled out their second floor window to escape the flames, according to fire officials.
Gladwyne firefighters, Captain Bart Rose, engineer John Robb, firefighter Tillerman Dave Watrous, firefighters Tom C. Hayden, Jr., Andy Culbertson and Mike Newell arrived and raised ladders to rescue the father and two children, according to Gladwyne Deputy Chief Andy Block.
Crews then entered the home and found the family dog and removed it safely from the home.
The family was transported to the hospital for evaluation by Narberth Ambulance.
Bryn Mawr, Ardmore and Narberth fire companies assisted against the blaze.
