AU478 Responds to 2 Alarm Fire with Mayday

May 21st, 2004

Jacksonville's air unit was dispatched lunchtime on Friday for a working fire in Stevenson. Initial units arrived and reported heavy fire and smoke conditions. As crews made an interior attack, two firefighters fell through a large hole that appeared as the floor caved in. A mayday was called by the two stuck in the hot basement. When the mayday was called, a second alarm and a Rapid Intervention Task Force were also alerted. The two firefighters were quickly rescued and both transported to Sinai hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Jacksonville had two personnel on the scene filling air bottles and numerous personnel standing-by at the station.
