Units Respond to Fully-Involved Shed on Stansbury Mill Road (Fire Box 47-8)

June 16th, 2008

At 1436 hours on Monday, units from Jacksonville and nearby stations were dispatched for reports of a building fire in the 4000 block of Stansbury Mill Road. Engine 471, Engine 473, and Special Unit 476 responded on the call along with other companies. Initial units arrived minutes later to find a fully-involved shed approximately 15 feet x 30 feet to the rear of a house. Bystanders reported that they had witnessed lightning strike the shed. The officer on E473 established command while the crew stretched a three inch supply line down the driveway. Crews pulled two 1 3/4 inch hoselines and began making an attack on the fire. Other units continued to the scene to provide an adequate water supply. A shuttle was set up from the nearby underground water source on Donerin Way. Units remained at location for some time extinguishing hot spots and performing overhaul operations. All units cleared at 1808 hours.
