Jacksonville Responds to Dwelling Fire (Fire Box 44-31)

October 1st, 2005

Just after 0700 hours on Saturday, units from the Northern end of the county were dispatched for the report of a dwelling fire. While enroute, Engine 441 requested a tanker strike team, which included Engine 471. Units from Hereford arrived minutes later, laying supply line in from the end of a long driveway. Command was established, reporting a 2-story single family dwelling 60% involved with fire. The working fire profile was then requested. Initial crews pulled two 1 ¾” lines to make an aggressive interior attack. A draft site was set up at a neighbors pool approximately 100 feet from the house. They advised the pool would give 20,000 gallons to work with. Units from numerous other stations arrived and their crews walked down the driveway to perform various tasks. Numerous units from 44 continued to work fire attack while an engine from Harford County established RIT. Engine 471 primarily worked on truck work. Multiple ladders were thrown to the roof. Jacksonville 's personnel worked on ventilation and at one point pulled a hand line up a ladder to the roof to work on attacking the fire from above. Other companies on the scene included units from Maryland Line, Cockeysville , Texas , and multiple other pieces of equipment from York and Harford Counties .
