2+ Alarms in Hagerstown MD.
Monday May 3rd 2nd Battalion firefighters,and Washington County Sta.10 firefighters were turned out for a fire in an occupied apartment building. First alarm consisted of E-5, E-101, E-1, Trk.-1, Rsq.-10 and Capt.32 (acting 2nd Battalion Chief) Because of heavy smoke and fire being visible to all responding companies, Trk.-4 was special called. Units arrived to find rear of the structure and attached structures well involved in fire, and occupants jumping from the windows. Capt.32 transmitted a working fire, and quickly requested the 2nd alarm. A blitz attack was mounted with 4 attack lines and 1 master stream, to support the interior search operations. Primary search was completed, with no other victims found. Heavy fire had now taken possesion of the ****loft, and could be seen through the roof on sides 2 and 3. At this time offensive ops. were suspended, and a defensive masterstream operation begun. the fire was knocked down in approximately 2 1/2 hours, however units conducted overhaul and salvage for several more. Fire is considered suspicious in origin, and the investigation is continuing by the Hagerstown Fire Marshalls' Office.
