Just after 11:30pm on February 5th companies from Fullerton (8), Golden Ring (16), Rosedale (280) and Parkville (10) were alerted for the report of a dwelling fire 4500 Block of Kenwood Ave. Engine and Truck 8 were first to arrive and reported heavy fire showing from the Alpha Side (front) of the dwelling. A 2-1/2” attack line was placed into service in an attempt to knock down the fire as fast as possible. Units then received reports that the occupant of the dwelling was still inside, this upgraded the response to a Fire Rescue Box alerting units from Perry Hall (55), Townson (1), Kingsville (480) and mutual aid by Baltimore City Fire dept Truck 30.Rosedale’s Engine 281 was the 3rd engine to arrive, covering the hydrant for Engine 8. The crew from E281 (minus the driver) proceeded to the fire ground where they stretched an 1-3/4” attack line to the Charlie Side (rear) of the dwelling to assist in operations. After the line was in place E281’s crew then climbed a ground ladder to the roof of the rear porch and attempted to vent, enter and search the second floor. Due to heavy hoarding conditions they were unable to make entry. Adding to the hoarding conditions Command reported that the fire had extended to both the second floor and the attic prompting the dwelling to be evacuated and the fire to be temporarily fought from a defensive posture.With no one permitted to enter the dwelling E281’s crew then proceeded to open up the roof soffits in an attempt to attack the fire in the attic space from the exterior. With their air tanks stating to run low E281 was replaced by T30. After getting fresh bottles and making a stop at Rehab 155 E281 reported back to Command for another assignment. Command sent E281 back to side Charlie to continue to support suppression operations.The crew from Squad 483 located the occupant of the dwelling and confirmed the fatality. Due to the now poor stability of the dwelling all crews were ordered out and Truck 8’s aerial pipe was placed into service to suppress the fire and bring it under control.No injuries were reported amongst fire service personnel and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.E281 Crew:Driver: FF/EMT David NiederhauserOfficer: 2ndLt Patrick BeltonNozzleman: PFF Alex McJiltonIrons: FF Dan Hueter5th: FF/EMT Thomas Gagliano6th: FF/EMR Jared Harding
