Box Assignment for Multiple House Fires - Reed St. - Frankford

Monday, June 8, 2015
At 01:38 hours on Wednesday, February 19, 2003 Frankford Vol. Fire Co., Dagsboro Vol. Fire Co. and Sussex County Medic 105 were dispatched to a house fire on Reed Street in Frankford. Upon arrival, Asst. Chief Murray (76-16), with the command advised one unoccupied house fully involved and a second house with fire on the porch that was heavily occupied. Prior to the arrival of Engine 731 the porch fire had been extinguished and a hand line was in service on side 1 of the heavily involved house. Engine 731, under the command of deputy McCabe, arrived and stretched 900' of 5" hose from a hydrant from the Honolulu Road end of Reed Street. The crew of Engine 731 (Lt. Glenn, B. Donaway, & M. Hough) advanced a 1 3/4" hose line into a porch area located on side 4. The crew was later assisted by C. Dorey of station 76 and before backing out, achieved significant knockdown on the first floor towards the rear of the structure. Interior crews were forced to back out when the structural integrity was compromised. Simultaneously, crews from Frankford and Dagsboro were continuing on the front and rear of the structure. Extension into the walls were extinguished using exterior and ground ladder operations. The Selbyville VFC was requested to assist with a ladder/tower in order to vent and extinguish the fire in the roof due to layered construction and structural integrity. The Gumboro VFC was requested to cover for Frankford VFC and later brought to the scene bringing the Roxana VFC to fill their assignment. The situation was called under control at 03:35 and all units cleared, returning to quarters at 04:44. Both fires have been labeled suspicious and the cause of both blazes are being investigated by the Delaware State Fire Marshals Office. No Injuries were reported. Units Operating on Scene: Engine 761, Rescue/Engine 763, Engine 766, Engine 731, Engine 732, Engine 736, Engine 794, Rescue Co. 73, Tower 88, Amb. A-73, Amb. B-76, Utility 7610, DSFMO, DSP, DOT Units Proving Cover Assignments: Millsboro VFC, Engine 831 to Dagsboro Roxana VFC, Engine 905 to Frankford
