Jacksonville Units Respond to Two Alarm Dwelling Fire (Fire Box 39-10)

January 27th, 2002

Late Sunday night, Jacksonville was alerted for multiple reports of a house on fire in the Greenlands neighborhood. Engine 473 went en route almost instantly, and while still en route reported heavy fire from approximately 5 miles away. A tanker strike team was requested. Laying a line in from Cripplegate Rd, crews off the first engine began an aggressive interior attack on what was now a fully involved garage fire with extension. A second alarm as well as two additional engines were requested by the Battalion Chief as he assumed command. Additional units arrived from numerous neighboring stations, including Cockeysville, Texas, Lutherville, Hereford, Long Green, Towson, Butler, Chestnut Ridge, Jarrettsville, and others. Crews continued there attack, and at multiple times ran out of water. The fire was held fairly well to it's point at the arrival of first-in units. Units cleared approximately four hours after. Jacksonville had 15 people on scene, including 11 on fire engines, two at one of the draft sites on the tanker support unit, and two on the air unit filling bottles.
