Both Engines Respond to Four Alarm Fire in Cockeysville (Fire-Rescue Box 17-19)

June 4th, 2009

At approximately 2330 hours on Thursday, units from the first battalion were alerted for reports of an apartment fire at Milestone Manor Apartments in Cockeysville. Jacksonville’s Engine 473 responded on the first alarm. While units were still en-route, dispatch advised that multiple calls had been received with reports of the building engulfed in flames and people trapped. A fire-rescue assignment and working fire profile were then dispatched. Engine 17 arrived on location minutes later reporting heavy fire through the roof. Command was established and a second alarm was requested. Engine 473 arrived a few minutes later and laid 400 feet of 5 inch supply line to Scott Adam Road and St. David Court. The crew on E473 then assisted units with search and rescue and working to keep the fire under control in the exposure buildings. Meanwhile, a third and fourth alarm were dispatched bringing Jacksonville’s E471. Once the fire was knocked in the exposure buildings, master stream devices and ladder pipes were used to knock down the fire in the building of origin as the roof and floors had collapsed. Jacksonville units cleared at approximately 0300 hours. Other crews operated on the scene for a few more hours assisting investigators and wetting down hot spots. The final count of apartment units damaged by fire, smoke, and water was 39.
