Multi-Structure Fire on Fisher Road

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

 

On April 17, 2013 – 1412 hrs, Stations 300, 400, and Talbot Station 80 were alerted for a building fire at 9335 Fisher road.  As units went responding, they were advised by dispatch that this was believed to be a working alarm.  At this time, tankers from Easton and Greensboro were added to the call. 

Ambulance 391 was the first arriving unit and advised heavy fire in a garage/barn with extension to several other outbuilding structures.  Engine 302 (4 w/Sefton-317) arrived and the crew quickly stretched several handlines to attack the fire to stop its extension.  Tanker 306 (Fearins) arrived shortly after and picked up Engine 302's line.  Officer 316 (Higgs) arrived shortly thereafter and established Fisher Road Command. 

DES officer 902 was also on the scene and advised command that there was a second driveway to the structures off of Saulsbury Road. He also advised that he had heavy fire in structures on the Saulsbury Road side and requested an engine and tanker to attack the fire from that side.  Engine Tanker 86 took that assignment and quickly put two more lines in service.  The crew of Engine 401 assisted officer 317 with fire attack and also dumped into tanker 306. At this time, command assigned officer 801 (Morgan) as the water supply officer.  Engine 401 established a fill site on Saulsbury Road and began filling tankers in the shuttle operation.  When Tanker 61 arrived, they hooked into Engine 302 and supplied them for the duration.  Tanker 606 arrived and supplied Engine Tanker 86 on the Saulsbury Road side. 

A second alarm was requested for manpower and water.  This brought Stations 700, Kent/DE 50, Talbot 50 and Talbot 60. It took the crews roughly an hour to bring the fire in the five structures under control, however with the cluttered conditions an excavator had to be called in for extensive overhaul.  Units remained on scene for approximately 2 more hours assisting with overhaul.
