Basement Fire in Garden Village

     

Friday, March 11, 2016 0110



Just after 1am on 03/11/16 Baltimore County 911 was notified of a possible dwelling fire in the 6000 Block of Nahant Rd. This alerted Engine 282 (Rosedale), Engine 16 (Golden Ring), Engine 7 (Essex), Engine & Truck 8 (Fullerton). Battalion Chief 3 arrived at location and reported a 2-story middle of group with light smoke showing. Upon his further investigation via a visual inspection of the rear he verified a basement fire. E16 arrived in front of the dwelling and began to stretch an 1-3/4” attack line to the rear.

Rosedale’s E282 arrived and took to the rear of the dwelling and stretched a second 1-3/4” attack line. E16 opened up the rear basement window and knocked all visible fire from the exterior. The crew from E282 then assisted E16 with forcing the rear basement door and advancing the attack line into the basement to search for extension. The fire was contained to the area of origin. There were no injuries reported from either fire service personnel or occupants.
