FCFD responds to Morrow County structure fire

CH411, T417, G412 were dispatched at 9:54pm on Sunday night to the 6000 block of County Road 76 in Morrow County on a residential structure fire. This was a mutual-aid with Mount Gilead Fire Department.

FCFD had a crew first assigned as a RIT team for the incident and then bumped up to interior, assisting with overhauling the structure and searching for extension. A second crew maintained the hydrant nearest to the scene and assisted with filling tankers.

The FCFD had a total of 13 firefighters respond to the call, and had an engine crew standby on station. All units were back in quarters by 12:19am.

FCFD addresses signs

It has been brought to our attention that signs mentioning “Fire/EMS” have been appearing around the fire district in recent weeks. Persons placing these are not acting on behalf of the Fredericktown Community Fire District or the Fredericktown Firefighters Association. Our organization does not endorse the statement being displayed, or the information being provided by those involved.
