FCFD responds to RD 183 in Morrow County on structure fire

CH411, T417, G414 were dispatched at 11:31am on Wednesday to the 7000 block of Road 183 in Morrow County on the report of a single family residential structure fire. This was a mutual-aid run with the Big Walnut Joint Fire District Station 39.

Upon arrival to scene, CH411 found a single floor structure fully engulfed next to a residence. T417 made the initial attack upon arrival to the scene. Two 1 ¾” hose lines were stretched for fire attack where incoming crews from BWJFD, Mount Gilead, Johnsville, and Porter Kingston worked together from suppression to overhaul. Primary search of the building was completed and one occupant was removed from the house directly across the porch from the fire. A coordinated aggressive attack between all departments responding kept the fire to the initial structure and kept the resident from a complete loss of her home.

Water supply was established just west the scene, with a grass truck drafting water from a pond just off the roadway and filling tankers.

The initial tanker from the FCFD left with two personnel. A total of nine FCFD firefighters responded to the call.
