After clearing a separate call for a fire alarm malfunction, Jacksonville’s Engine 471 and Medic 475 responded with Baltimore County’s Urban Search and Rescue Team (USAR17) to a reported tree into a house on Bardon Road in the Summer Hill development. Units arrived minutes later to find a tree that had broken and fallen over into a house. Crews worked to evaluate the structural integrity of the house and temporarily seal holes in the roof to protect from the heavy rain. Units were on location approximately one hour.
