July 4th Fire
Just after 6pm on July 4th, Engine 8 (Fullerton)
was alerted to investigate a report of a residential fire alarm on the 600
Block of Dale Ave (Box Area 08-04). As Engine 8 made their turn onto Dale Ave a
request was made to fill out the Box as they had smoke showing from a
single-story duplex. This alerted Battalion Chief 3, E16 (Golden Ring), E281
(Rosedale), E10 (Parkville) and Truck 8 (Fullerton). This was followed shortly
by the dispatch of the Working Fire profile which alerted E55 (Perry Hall),
Squad 523 (Middle River Vol), T15 (Eastview), Rehab 155 (Central Alarmers) and
a Medic unit and EMS Supervisor
Rosedale’s Engine 281 responded from Fullerton Park, where
it was staged for the evening’s Independence Day fireworks celebration. Due to
its close proximity to the location of the fire E281 was second to arrive on
scene. Command directed the crew from E281 to stretch a back-up line and then
make entry and begin a search of the dwelling. E281’s crew was joined by the
crew from Truck 8 and conducted a primary search of the dwelling, resulting in
the homeowner’s dog being found. The attack crew from E8 had knocked down the
fire, which was confined to the kitchen, in short order.
Due to the swift actions of the initial arriving company and
the professional actions by all units on the assignment the fire was brought
under control in less than 30 minutes. Crews from E8, E281, and T8 remained on
scene for an additional 20mins conducting overhaul and pack-up.
No injuries were reported from amongst fire service
personnel, and the homeowner was transported to a local hospital to be treated
for minor smoke inhalation.

Just before 3:30pm on the afternoon of Feb 14th units from Rosedale (280), Golden Ring (16), Eastview (15), and Essex (7) were alerted for the report of a dwelling fire in the 7400 block of Brightside Ave. While enroute, units were notified by dispatch that multiple calls to 911 identified that the dwelling had a fire on the first floor and that was spreading. Engine 16 arrived to a 1-1/2 story, single family dwelling with fire showing from the Alpha (front), Charlie (rear) and Delta (right) sides. E281 arrived in short order behind E16 and covered the hydrant. The Officer of E16 upgraded the call to a working fire, alerting units from Middle River (12), Middle River Vol Fire (220) and Rehab 155. Rosedale’s E282 also responded with additional personnel.The crew from E281 assisted E16 with deploying the initial attack line before deploying the secondary line. Both E16s and E281s attack crews knocked down the fire presenting from the windows prior to attempting entry from the Charlie side. Within feet of entering the dwelling, a member from E16 fell thru the floor of the kitchen prompting his partner to declare a MAYDAY. The firefighter was rapidly pulled out of the hole by his partner without any additional assistance. Due to the MAYDAY command ordered all units out of the dwelling in order to conduct a Personnel Accountability Report (PAR) to ensure all crews were accounted for. Once suppression operations resumed the fire was brought quickly under control. Units remained on scene to conduct overhaul and assist fire investigators.There were no injuries reported from fire service personnel. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.Rosedale’s Crews:E281:Driver-FF/EMT David NiederhauserOfficer-2ndLt Patrick BeltonNozzleman-PFF/EMR Anthony PakulaIrons: FF/EMT Thomas GaglianoE282:Driver-FADO Richard GrossOfficer-FF/EMT William LandefeldNozzleman-FF/EMR Steve SobulIrons: FF Willis SpencerAdditional members on scene: 1stLt Chuck Hueter, FF/EMR Jack Mazza, FF/EMT Danny Ciapura
