By 7th District Volunteers
February 22, 2021

At 0244 on Friday morning, Station 5 was alerted to a garage fire on Whites Neck Road. Units arrived on scene and located a single story commercial garage with heavy fire throughout the building.

Engine 52 deployed two hand lines and a 2.5" line to the structure to protect exposures and cool a venting propane tank. Chief 5 established the command and advised the fire would be a defensive attack. Chief 5A held the fire attack. Tanker 5 supplied Engine 52 and dropped their folding tank. Engine 23 proceeded to the scene and drafted from the tank to supply Engine 52. Water Supply 5 set up draft at Bushwood Wharf and began a tanker shuttle. Command requested three additional tankers to the scene due to the volume of fire and the size of the structure.

Both Truck 1 and Truck 7 accessed the scene on side delta. Truck 1's ladder pipe was utilized and equipment was utilized from Truck 7. Water Supply 5 supplied a total of 46,000 gallons of water to the scene through the tanker shuttle. Squad 6 and Engine 93 set up RIT for a short time before being utilized in the crew rotation. During the incident several units were released to respond on a working house fire in St. Clements Shores.

The Maryland State Fire Marshals Office is investigating the incident. All units returned to quarters by 0730 hours.
