April 7, 2023

On Thursday evening, just prior to 2330 hours, Rescue Squad 2 was alerted to Goode Road and Prince Frederick Road for a House on Fire. Chief 829 was on the scene with fire showing from a single family home.

Engine 1002, Squad 1002, and Anne Arundel Tanker 9 all arrived to find a 2 story single family home with fire showing.

Squad 2 arrived next and the crew went to work assisting the first arriving units with fire extinguishment, searches, and opening up.

A short time into the incident there were two separate failures of structural members. When this happened Squad 2s officer and a member from another department fell through the flooring of the home and were suspended by the floor joists. On scene members quickly assisted these members to safety. At the same time the stairwell to the basement catastrophically failed snd Squad 2s Driver and a member from another department fell into the basement. Both members were rescued quickly by crews on the first floor when they lowered an attic ladder down into the basement for the members to climb up.

One member of Squad 2 was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Chief 2 operated on the incident on Division 1 for the incident. Crews had the the bulk of the fire knocked down in 10 minutes and worked for about 2 hours chasing extension in the walls.

Tanker 2 was operating on a house fire in Marbury when this structure fire went out, and was diverted to the house fire in Hughesville. Tanker 2 was then placed in service and handled a transfer to Hughesville during the incident.

Units: Squad 2, Tanker 2, Chief 2
