CH411, E419, E413, T417, R415, and G414 were dispatched at 4:18pm on Tuesday evening to the 14000 block of Lucerne Road in Wayne Township on the report of a fully engulfed barn fire with an exposure nearby. Tankers from College Township and the Big Walnut Joint Fire District (Morrow County) responded mutual-aid on the call
When CH411 arrived to scene, he found a full engulfed barn fire, roughly 20×30 that was mostly on the ground with a home nearby to the north. Two 1 ¾” attack lines were stretched from E419, and the incoming crews worked to coordinate fire suppression. Crews worked to tear apart the piles of metal siding and wooden structure to get access the fire burning underneath.
Water supply was established using a hydrant at the nearby Delco Water plant on Lucerne Road. Tankers were used to shuttle water to the scene.
The original call on the fire was from the neighbor. No one was at the property at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire is undetermined. The structure and contents were a total loss.
In total the FCFD had 14 firefighters and one cadet respond to the call. All units were back in quarters by 6:06pm.
