New Year Starts with Unusual First Due Incident (Haz-Mat Fire Box 47-10)

January 1st, 2006

The first call of the year dispatched for Station 47 is not one heard too often. In the early morning, units from Jacksonville and throughout Baltimore County were dispatched for reports of an explosion at one of the off-site pumping locations for the Exxon-Mobil gasoline recovery operation. Engines 471 and 473 responded within minutes and arrived less than a minute later to find light smoke showing from one of the sheds at location. Nearby homeowners and workers from the Exxon-Mobil site were at location. An apparent electrical short had blown a fuse. Luckily, the incident did not progress any further. After confirming with on-site representatives that the situation was safe, units cleared.

Jacksonville Units: E471, E473
