Station 41 had a busy night tonight. We started out testing hose on the Engines as part of standard safety tests. During our hose tests S414 and E412 handled a firebox in Glyndon’s area (which ended up being a light smoke from a lawnmower entering a house). About 30 minutes after returning to service S414 got a call for a local firebox in 56’s area. We were arrived and staged and then was cleared.
Just after 11 am on May 16 we were dispatched for a motor vehicle accident on Main St at Stocksdale Rd. Upon arrival, crews found a vehicle into a pole. The pole was split in half with the top of the pole hanging above main street. Main St. remained closed late into the evening.
Tonight at approximately 6:30p a firebox came out for dwelling fire on St Paul Ave in Glyndon. Reisterstown’s Engine 412 and Squad 414 arrived shortly after Engine 401 and setup for a fire attack with a 1 3/4″ handline. Two off the engine went the front door, through the house to keep the fire from spreading in the house. The squad’s crew went to division 2 to open the walls up to stop fire getting into the house. All crews remained on-scene for approximately 2 hours and then returned to service.
While Engine 413 was at pump test, Engine 412, Rescue Squad 414 and Special Unit 418 went to a nearby complex for ladder training.
