APRIL 3, 2018 – WORKING FIRE ON MARWOOD DR (NEW HOPE FIRE DISTRICT)

At 1712, RW911 dispatched New Hope Stations 1 and 2, along with Eastern Wake FD, Wendell FD, and Raleigh FD E27 as closest engine, for a reported structure fire on Marwood Dr, in unincorporated Wake County. Car 1 was first on scene, with New Hope 101 (Deputy Chief Price) establishing command, reporting an 1800 Sq foot residence, with smoke showing from the roof. Chief Price requested 3 additional tankers and 2 additional engines, and provided an updated size-up of a working kitchen fire that had extended to the attic.

Engine 27 was the first engine on scene, and secured their own hydrant, however due to the fact it was a private hydrant system, the IC initiated a tanker shuttle to provide water supply. Several lines were stretched as crews began knocking down the fire, and completing searches.

Once the fire was knocked down, crews set up a PPV fan at the front door to vent all the smoke, and overhaul was completed. The fire was marked as extinguished in less than 45 minutes.

New Hope units who responded included Car 1, Engine 1, Tanker 11, Engine 4, Tanker 9, and Rescue 14

Thanks to all the departments that provided assistance at this fire, including Eastern Wake, Northern Wake, Wendell, Rolesville, and Raleigh FD, and Wake County Fire Marshal’s office.
