Philadelphia Firefighter Arrested After Allegedly Holding 4 Firefighters Hostage

A Philadelphia firefighter was arrested after allegedly holding four other firefighters hostage inside a firehouse in the Elkins Park section of Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County on Tuesday morning.

Around 10:55 a.m. Cheltenham Police were called out to the LaMott Fire House on Penrose Avenue and Graham Lane in Cheltenham. Television footage showed SWAT team members entering the building.


An armed suspect allegedly held firefighters hostage for about an hour before police were able to apprehend the suspect and take the suspect into custody, allowing for the release of the hostages.

Action News reported that the suspect was also a firefighter. Chopper 6 from ABC was overhead as heavily armed SWAT team officers entered the firehouse through a garage. They then closed the garage door behind them for about 15 minutes before reopening the door, ABC 6 reported.

As police attempted to secure the scene, several individuals were detained. At least one of the suspects was put into a police van and transported away from the scene. It is unclear if that person, or any of the other individuals, is the suspect at the time of this reporting.

Television footage showed a least one man coming out of the fire house with his arms up in the arm and later being handcuffed.

There is no word at this time if anyone was injured during the incident. There have been no reports on shots being fired either.

LaMott Fire Company in Cheltenham Township is about 10 miles north of downtown Philadelphia.

This is a developing story.
