Both Engines Respond to Fully Involved Dwelling off of Pot Springs Road (Fire Box 17-15)

July 9th, 2010

Just before 1700 hours, units from Texas and the surrounding area were alerted for the report of a dwelling fire on Anglo Hill Road off of Pot Springs Road. Due to other fire calls, Jacksonville was one of the first units dispatched on the initial assignment. While still enroute, units reported a heavy column of black smoke. Minutes later, units from Station 17 arrived and established command, advised the rear of the house was fully involved, and began defensive operations to fight the fire and protect nearby dwellings. Engine 473ís crew established itís own water supply in a development to the rear of the dwelling and stretched 300 feet of 3 inch hose to a Blitz-Fire to attack the fire at the rear of the dwelling and protect exposures with assistance from other units. Units remained on scene for approximately three hours.
