First Due Working House Fire
Friday, November 26, 2021
As crews were clearing from a first due camper fire on the evening of November 26th, Kent Center contacted Command 51 and advised them that they were taking a second emergency in the district for a working house fire in the 300 block of Judith Road. Station 51 units along with mutual aid departments made the response and arrived on scene within minutes of dispatch. Interior crews encountered fire conditions in the basement, the first floor and the attic. While units were operating, a radio transmission of collapse was relayed and a Mayday was declared by command. One minute after the Mayday was declared, interior crews advised that they were under control and the Mayday was cleared. The scene was then placed under control with units from Station 51, Station 56 (Marydel), Station 41 (Camden), Station 46 (Dover) and Station 45 (Clayton) working further on overhaul. Deputy Chief Read had the command. Special thanks to Queen Anne’s County, Maryland Station 6 (Sudlersville) for providing a cover up at the station.
