Wedgewood Car Fire

10/28/2015: At 0825 Company 20 was alerted to a vehicle fire at the Wedgewood Medical Arts building off VanVoorhis Road. Initial size-up yielded a single vehicle with smoke and flames showing and possibly endangering a structure. Engine 201 and Ambulance 28 responded to the incident and upon arrival found one passenger vehicle in the parking area with substantial smoke and flames showing from the engine compartment, but no apparent danger to the structure. (1) 200ft 1 3/4″ crosslay was utilized for access to the vehicle and to extinguish the fire. Due to the quick response and effective scene work of the responding personnel the passenger compartment was very minimally involved. As a result, all personal belongings inside the vehicle (including the paper registration and insurance cards in the glovebox) were able to be returned to the owner of the vehicle undamaged.
