Yesterday at 1625 hours, Firefighters from Bay District, PAX
River, Hollywood, and Valley Lee were alerted to a report of a house fire in
the 21000 block of Garfield Street in Great Mills. Companies arrived on scene
to discover a single story, single family home with fire and heavy smoke
One Firefighter was taken by MSP (Helicopter) Trooper 7 to an area trauma
center for smoke inhalation. Another firefighter was treated and released at
the scene for leg injuries after falling through the floor and then having to
evacuate through a window. All personnel are NLT injuries.
The bail out through a window (behind the tree to
the right of the front porch) occurs at about 4:50 in the video. Click through

Earlier today, STATter911.com received a comment from Bay District VFD Chief Shawn M. Downs. Here’s part of what it said:
One FF was indeed flown to PG, however he was
released around noon today. The other FF refused transport on the
scene, and is recovering well. I am very thankful for the outpouring
support that the Brotherhood has shown for my members. For all of the
phone calls, texts and the like, many thanks!
These two will no doubt be back on our appartus by weeks end! Stay Safe Out There!
