By Mechanicsville Volunteers
April 19, 2018

At 1630 hours Engine Company 2 was alerted to 7320 Benedict Avenue, in Benedict for the reported building fire at the Rivers Edge Restaurant. Engine 23 (Sgt. Burroughs) went responding at dispatch with 5. First arriving units from Benedict found a 1 story commercial building well involved with fire throughout.

Hughesville Engine 22 laid out dual lines from a hydrant, and Engine 23 arrived shortly after and supplied the supply lines for Engine 22. Engine 23s crew stretched a handline to Side Charlie and began knocking down the fire there with Calvert Tower 2 and Calvert Rescue Squad 6.

Once water supply was secured, command requested to flow both ladder pipes on the structure to knock the bulk of the fire down. Once completed, crews gained entry into the structure again to finish knocking down any more fire and to overhaul the structure.

Engine 23 operated for approximately 2 hours before returning to service.

Chief 1002A held the Benedict Command.

Units: Engine 23
