Engines Run Hereford Dwelling Fire (Fire-Rescue Box 44-23)

April 11th, 2006

At approximately 2210 hours Tuesday night, units from Hereford and surrounding companies were dispatched for the report of a dwelling fire with people trapped on Miller Rd. Engine 473 responded on the first alarm assignment with five personnel. As units were approaching the scene, a large glow and column of smoke was reported and a tanker strike team was requested. Engine 471 then responded with four personnel. Minutes later, as Engine 442 arrived on the scene reporting over 50% involvement, a working fire profile was requested. Jacksonville's units joined crews on the scene working to make an aggressive interior attack with four separate hand lines in an attempt to keep the fire from the unburned side of the house. A tanker shuttle was put into operation to bring water to the scene. Both of Jacksonville's engines remained at the scene for over two hours performing salvage and overhaul operations. Engine 471 cleared the incident at approximately 0130 hours and returned to Station 47. Engine 473 cleared the incident shortly afterwards and was sent to Hereford's station to fill-in for Co. 44 units until they cleared at approximately 0230 hours.
