Fire at BGE Substation

On 7/13/14 units from Reisterstown were alerted for a transformer fire in the area of Cockeys Mill Rd and I-795. Engine 412 responded first arriving to find a 16,000 gallon transformer on fire at the BGE sub station. Engine 412 struck the fire box and established command. This brought Squad 414 and Engine 413 to the scene among many other apparatus from surrounding companies. Once the power was secured to the sub station by BGE the fire was extinguished by the aid of a crash rescue truck out of BWI Airport. Units were on scene and operated for approximately 2 hours before being ready for service.
