MARYLAND FIREFIGHTERS HURT-SINGLE FAMILY DWELLING FIRE

     

Monday, November 26, 2012

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 showing.
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 the series of still pictures at http://smnewsnet.com/archives/35576 (MORE LINKS BELOW)

 

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!

The mayday is announced at 7:13 on the audio recording below.
