    Default Rural home burns

    At 1653hrs on Sept 5, the city of Leduc Fire Services responded to a single family dwelling, a 1000sq' bungalow on twp500 and rgrd234 aprox. 10miles from station 1. Report came in from home owner that her dryer had caught fire in the basement and that the laundry room was in flames. It took fire fighters 14 minutes to arrive on scene from time of dispatch, upon arrival fire was coming out 2 basement windows and heavy smoke conditions on the main floor. While the officer set up hivol for a rural hitch four firefighters deployed a sisco load and immediatly made entry to the house and down the stairs to the fire room for a quick knockdown in the basement room. the second in pumper sent a crew in through the front door main level and effected a knockdown of fire extention from the floor being burnt through into 2 bedrooms. Fire was caused from an overheated dryer which caught a number of clothing items that were on top of the control panel. Estimated dollar loss $75-100,000, leaving a family of 5 homless, but were taken care of by family and friends.

    Could you explain what a rural hitch and sisco load are? I am not familiar with those terms.
