First-Due Dwelling Fire on Blenmont Court (Fire Box 47-16)

October 29th, 2005

Units were dispatched for a fire-rescue box with multiple occupants trapped in Jacksonville's first-due area early Saturday morning. Engine 473 was first on the scene, reporting a two-story wood-framed dwelling with heavy fire showing on side Alpha. Crews quickly began an aggressive interior attack on what was then a fully-involved second floor that had spread to the attic. The occupants had made it out prior to the arrival of the fire department, however both occupants were transported by medic units for smoke inhalation and minor burns. A working fire profile and tanker strike team were both requested. The fire was held from spreading any further than its point upon the arrival of the first engine on the scene. Ten personnel from Jacksonville operated for over two hours along with a number of other personnel from neighboring departments.
