Saturday, July 14, 2018

On July 14, 2018 at 5:16am the Harford County Department of Emergency Services 911 center received a call reporting a house on fire with people trapped in the 2900 bock of Siwanoy Drive in Edgewood. This is within the Abingdon Fire Company - MD territory. Their company was dispatched along with units from the JMVFC, Aberdeen Proving Ground Fire & Emergency Services and The Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company. At 5:21 am, Truck 832 (JMVFC) arrived and reported a two-story, single family home, with fire showing and a vehicle on fire in the driveway. Additional units were requested bringing the Aberdeen Fire Department, Inc., Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company and the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company. With the reports of people trapped, the crew from Truck 832 (fire truck that carries ladders and rescue tools but no water or hose) had to act. Without the protection of a fire hose and at risk to their own lives, the crew entered the home and began to search for the trapped occupants. Two adult males and a dog were located on the second floor and were assisted out of the home by JMVFC Firefighters without injury! As fire engines (carries water and hoses) from Abingdon Fire Co & APGFD arrived, Firefighters aggressively attacked the fire from inside the house. Additional crews extinguished the vehicle fire outside. The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office responded. Investigators determined that the fire began at the vehicle and extended to the home. The cause remains under investigation. Damage is estimated at $200,000. Although smoke alarms were present, they did not activate. A fire engine from the Fallston Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Co. covered called for the JMVFC while units were away at this call. Due to the heroic efforts of the JMVFC Firefighters, there were no injuries at this incident!
