At 1247 hrs on Sunday Oct 18, Station 300 was alerted for a Structure Fire in the 3-1 Box on Caroline Street. E-302 responded with 6 and arrived on the scene to find a one-story rambler with smoke showing. Chief 416 (Winchester) was on the scene and took command. E-302 had a difficult time making entry due to the packrat condition of the home. Once inside, the crew used two 1 ¾” lines to extinguish the fire. The overhaul was quite extensive due to the packrat condition and took crews from Company 300, 400 and 600 to complete. Units worked for approximately 3 hours on the scene.
DVFC would like to thank Company 200 for the fill in at Station 300.
