December 7, 2018

At 0141 hours, Engine Companies 2, 1002, 1005, Tankers 2, 1002, 1005, Trucks 7, 1001, and Squad 7 were alerted to 28540 Thompson Corner Road for the reported Sawmill on Fire. Engine 23, Tanker 2, Tanker 24, and Chief 2 responded with 10 personnel moments after dispatch. Engine 23 and Chief 2 were the first to arrive finding a large sawmill structure, approximately 100' X 40' well involved with fire. Chief 2 established the command.

Tankers 2, 24, 1002 and Engine 1005 were next to arrive and set-up water supply operations on Thompson Corner Road. Engine 23 advanced a 2' attack line and began to knock down the fire. Truck 7, Truck 1001, and Squad 7 were next to arrive. Crews stretched an additional attack line, began removing debris, and set up for ladder pipe operations.

Moments later Truck 7 began flowing the ladder pipe to knock down the bulk of the fire. The ladder pipe was then flowed again a short time later to wet the entire area down one last time.

Units operated for approximately 2 hours before being released by command.
