Glyndon Fire

A few nights ago Station 41 along with surrounding companies were alerted for a house fire in Glyndon’s area.  E56 arrived first and confirmed the fire.  E412 and S414 arrived shortly after E56 and established the water source, searched the house and assisted with extinguishment.  Our equipment was on-scene for approximately 2 hours.

Chestnut Ridge Fires

Wednesday afternoon and evening were very busy for RVFC.  Around 2pm we had a Carroll County fire box which we quickly cleared on as Carroll County units handled.  We got back in station and E412 was dispatched on a 2nd alarm fire in Chestnut Ridge’s area.  While that fire was going E413 was dispatched on another Carroll County fire which we arrived and cleared on.  Once we arrived back in station E413 was dispatched onto a second Chestnut Ridge fire (about a mile from the first).  After several hours both units were cleared.  E412 and S414 were dispatched on an apartment fire which turned out to be a pot of food.

Randallstown Apartment Fire

At around 2200 hours on January 19th S414 was alerted for an apartment fire in box area 18-03. First arriving units reported heavy fire showing and requested a second alarm for additional units. S414 responded with 5 and assisted crews on scene with extinguishing the fire that extended through the roofline into the adjacent building.  S414 operated for approximately 2 hours before returning to service.

Rescue on Butler Road

Just after 6pm on Tuesday June 28th units from Glyndon, Reisterstown, Chestnut Ridge, and Franklin fire stations were alerted for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment.  Upon arrival, units found a 2 vehicle accident with one person trapped.  Crews extricated the occupants and transported to local hospitals.

Carroll County Fire

Carroll County had a townhouse fire last night in which the rear of the building was fully involved upon their arrival. They quickly called for a second alarm in which E412 was requested based on our mutual aid agreement.  We arrived and aided crews with fire attack.  We were on scene for about an hour and helped pack up hoses for the first in companies.
