April 20, 2018

Just after 1230 hours on Friday, Engine 2 and Tanker 2 were alerted to Old Blandford Place in Hughesville for the reported House Fire. Engine 23 and Tanker 2 made the response with 5.

First arriving Engine 22 and Battalion 1 arrived to find fire showing from the 1st floor of a one story single family on a basement. Engine 22 was also met in the yard by the homeowner who had received burns from the fire.

A helicopter was immediately requested for the patient to be transported to a burn center. Engine 23 arrived as the 2nd due Engine, positioning out of the driveway at a pond to establish a water supply for the fireground.

Engine 23 established a draft and supplied the fireground while the crew went to work stretching a back up line and assisting with fire extinguishment on division 1 and in the attic.

Crews experienced hoarding conditions on the interior of the home and had the bulk of the fire knocked down in about 20 minutes.

Tanker 2 arrived shortly after Engine 23 but was not needed with the draft site being at the scene.

Hughesville Chief 2 held the command.
