DEC 1, 2019 – WORKING FIRE ON OLD CREWS RD (NEW HOPE FIRE DISTRICT)

At 1945, RW911 dispatched Wake New Hope FD stations 1 and 2 for a reported mobile home fire at 1912 Old Crews Rd, in unincorporated Wake County. New Hope Car 1 (Chief Price) was first on scene, reporting a singlewide mobile home with flames visible through the roof.

Engine 4 and Knightdale 131 arrived shortly thereafter, and encountered heavy fire in the kitchen, with extension to several other rooms, and stretched a line to begin knocking down the fire. Eastern Wake Squad 38 arrived next, performed a primary search and stretched a second line into the structure to assist with fire attack.

With the initial lines knocking down most of the fire, crews from New Hope Rescue 14 and Tankers 9 and 10 performed secondary searches, which were negative, while Engine 1 was assigned at RIT. The fire was marked under control, and additional mutual aid units were returned to service. Crews remained on scene performing extensive overhaul, with Wake County EMS performing rehab. The two occupants of the dwelling were able to escape before the FD arrived, and were uninjured
