AU478 Responds to Apartment Fire with Rescue in Hillendale (Fire Rescue Box 11-10)

March 8th, 2008

Just after 1030 hours on Saturday, units from Station 11 and surrounding companies were dispatched for the report of an apartment fire in the 7700 block of Hillendale Road. Additional information indicated that a fire on the stove was spreading. As units responded, another caller advised that there were people on the balconies. Engine 11 arrived minutes later and reported smoke showing. As command was established, a rescue assignment and a working fire profile were requested, bringing Jacksonvilles Air Unit 478. Crews worked to make an aggressive interior attack to knock down the fire on the first and second floors. Multiple ladders were thrown to upper floors to rescue occupants. Additional medic units were also requested for multiple victims. Units remained on scene to perform salvage and overhaul operations and cleared at approximately 1300 hours.
