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.

House Fire in Boring

Last night around 10pm RVFC along with surrounding companies were dispatched for a truck fire in a garage in Boring’s area. E412 arrived first to find a truck fully involved in an attached garage. Crews pulled a handline, pulled the garage door off and attacked the fire. A working fire and tanker strike team were dispatched. Due to the lack of water availability (no hydrants) the fire moved into the house. In all, more than 11 engines and tankers from Baltimore and Carroll Counties were involved in fire attack and water shuttle in order to put the fire out.  Once a water supply was confirmed, then crews made an interior attack. Units were on scene for approximately 4 hours.

Motor Vehicle Collision

Last night Reisterstown VFC were dispatched for an head on collision MVC with people trapped at Main St and Glyndon Dr. S414 went enroute with 5 rescue techs followed by E412 and SU418 which were staffed with home responders (another 5 members).  There was a two car MVC, at an updated location of Main St at Hanover Pike.  In the end, no one was trapped.
