By Assistant Chief Christopher Harris
March 30, 2017

Box 8-8. At about 19:10 hrs., units from Station 8 and surrounding departments were dispatched for a house fire at 5571 Doody Drive near Union Bridge. First arriving Chief 8 (Green) advised smoke showing from a 2 story wood frame house. After insuring no one was in the house, flame became visible in a second floor window and established "Doody Drive Command". The "Rapid Intervention Dispatch" was also requested.

Crews from Station 8 units quickly extinguished the fire in a second floor bedroom and as other units arrived, crew began salvage and overhaul operations. The fire damage was confined to the room of origin, but smoke damage effected the entire structure. The incident was placed under control in about 15 minutes and the assignment was reduced to Station 8, Engine 101 and Ladder 5. Crews remained on-scene for about 45 minutes while the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office conducted the preliminary investigation and crews began picking up equipment and hose. The fire is believed to have been caused by a box fan.

No injuries were reported.

Units: Station 8 (Union Bridge), Station 10 (New Windsor), Frederick Station 9 (New Midway), Station 5 (Taneytown), Frederick Station 13 (Rocky Ridge), Frederick Station 17 (Libertytown), FM41 (MSFMO)
