 On Tuesday January 5th at 4:46 pm the Dagsboro VFD was alerted for a fire nature unknown on Tubbs Lane,  shortly after dispatch Utility 73-12 went responding under the command of  Assistant Chief D.Betts and was advised from the EOC that the alarm was being upgraded to a working structure fire adding Frankford and Millsboro fire departments to the box. Upon arrival of Assistant Chief Betts he confirmed reports that it was a working structure fire with smoke showing from the eaves of a single story residence and established the command. Minutes after dispatch Engine 73-1 went responding under command of Deputy Chief J.Marvel with a staffing of 5. Upon arrival of 73-1 the crew laid a 5" supply line from the roadway for Tanker 73 to pick up on arrival, then stretched an 1 3/4" handline into the residence and began fire suppression in the attic of the residence. Upon the arrival of Engine 76-2 their crew placed a 2nd handline in service and also assisted with suppression with fire that had extended to the exterior of the residence.
