House fire early this morning

This morning there was a house fire in our first due area.  Engine 412 and Squad 414 arrived to find fire showing.  Engine 412 laid a supply line and the crew pulled a handline into the house. Engine 412 and Squad 414 were aided by Glyndon, Owings Mills and Engine 56. Station 41 equipment was on scene for approximately 90 minutes.

Vacant house fire

Tonight a dwelling fire was put out for a vacant house in Glyndon’s first due.  Reisterstown’s E412 was enroute very quickly after the first tone and S414 followed shortly after (along with other apparatus from surrounding stations).  E412 arrived to find a vacant house with smoke coming up from the basement area.  They pulled a handline off the engine and went around to the back as it had open access.  S414 crew opened up the front door and then removed some of the plywood covering the windows for ventilation.  The fire ended up being a small basement fire and the fire investigators were called to determine the cause of the fire. Reisterstown’s crew were there for approximately 2 hours.

42 Rescue Box – Truck into a ditch

This afternoon we had a rescue box where a truck went into a ditch.  The driver was in the vehicle when we arrived.  We stabilized the vehicle with the winch cable from the squad and extricated the patient using the stokes basket. The patient was transported by M435 and the engine and squad cleared shortly after.

We are very happy to have Obie Belt back in town to drive the squad on the call.
