Building Fire

In the early morning of September 13th E413 and S414 responded with surrounding stations for a reported building fire. Units arrived to find fire to the rear as well as the roof. Crews worked for approximately an hour and a half before returning to service.

Auto Fire Near Berryman’s Lane

Today, E412 was dispatched for an autofire near Berryman’s Lane. We arrived to find a pick-up truck with fire throughout the engine compartment and into the passenger compartment.

BGE Sub-Station Fire

Just before 9pm Baltimore County 911 center received multiple calls for a transformer on fire on Cockeysmill Road.  When engine 413 arrived, they found fire in several levels of the equipment inside the BGE substation.  Additional resources including water supply and foam units were requested.  All units staged until the arrival of BGE crews.  BGE personnel determined that the fire was in several capacitor banks.  BGE personnel shut down the electric supply to the capacitor banks and grounded the capacitors.  The ladder truck was moved into position to allow crews to extinguish the remaining fire.  All units were cleared within 2 hours.

Busy weekend for MVCs

This weekend was busy for motor vehicle collisions for S414.  Early Saturday morning (around 3am), just after the heavy rains in the area, a car went off of Route 30 and over the embankment. Then early Sunday morning there was another MVC on route 30.  This was followed Sunday afternoon by a truck that went down a hill off the 795 onto the on ramp below.

This is aside from the 7 other calls on Friday night and then a mower fire on Saturday afternoon.

National Night Out – Chartley

Last night was the National Night Out for the Chartley Neighborhood.  We had a great time there and thank you to all those who came around to see the fire trucks!

Outside building fire

Tonight E412 and E56 were dispatched for outside fire at building on Reisterstown Road.  E56 arrived and upgraded to a local fire box due to a large sign on fire on the building.  E56 pulled a handline and put the fire out. E412 went to the roof to check for extension and pull of the flashing to confirm the fire was out.

Training at Glyndon Elementary School

Tonight E412, E413, S414 and M415 went over to Glyndon Elementary School to do training.  We worked with a couple new members going over the hook up to the hydrant, pulled hand lines and deck gun.
