21/February/2019 – Structure Fire – “A” Shift
Incident # 19-01170 – A Green Pond residence was
heavily damaged in an afternoon fire which occurred Thursday 21-February at
514 Bowers Road. At 12:50, a neighbor reported smoke and flames coming from
the home. Engine 2 arrived to find heavy smoke conditions and flames coming
from the roof the windows on one side of the single story wood frame
dwelling. Two crews of Firefighter-Paramedics deployed separate handlines to
the buildings. One crew made entry through the front door and rescued a dog
that was tied up on the front porch. Fortunately the canine was not injured.
Interior crews knocked down the bulk of the fire within ten minutes, but
were on the scene for three hours performing overhaul. Firefighters
prevented any further extension of the fire, however the home suffered heavy
damage and the occupants lost most of their belongings. It appears the fire
started in a bedroom on the north end of the home and spread through the
remainder of the residence and the attic. No one was home when the fire
occurred. The Red Cross is assisting the family.
Engine 2, Engine 22, Tender 1, Tender 2, Tender 6, Tender 22, Tender 27, Battalion 1, Medic 1, Car 112, Car 116 and Car 118 responded. Battalion Chief Joseph Campbell served as Incident Commander.
