House Fire on Lyons Mill Road

Tonight around 6pm S414 and E412 were alerted for a house fire in Liberty Road’s area. Initial crews found a house on fire primarily on the right side (delta) of the house. S414 was assigned primary search (to confirm no one else is in the house) and E412 was directed to go to the 2nd floor and assist with extinguishing the fire. All units were on-scene for approximately 2 hours.

Residential Fire

This morning E412 along with surrounding volunteer and county units were dispatched for a house fire in Station 56’s area. E412 arrived to a single family house with smoke coming from the front door. Crews stretched a handline into the basement and put out a small fire. E412 was back in service approximately 1 hour later.

Squad 414 Cleanup

Our current Squad 414, a 1992 Peterbilt, has been in service since January 1993. It has served us well through the years. We have purchased a new squad that is currently being built (more information to follow in the next 6 months), but in the mean time we are cleaning up the Peterbilt to put it up for sale. All of the tools were removed and every compartment was cleaned. We will post a for sale post on our webpage in the next couple of weeks.
