5/29/2017: At 0231 Company 20 was alerted to respond 3rd due for a confirmed structure fire at the Lewellyn Road and Route 857 intersection in Cheat Lake. Engine 201 responded to the incident with four personnel and while en-route was alerted by CLVFD E141 (first arriving unit) of a two story single family residence that was heavily involved with fire with cars in the garage and unknown occupancy. Soon after arrival on scene Command 14 also advised that live electrical lines had burnt through and were now live on the ground which was hampering initial fire attack. Engine 201 arrived on scene and was tasked by Command 14 to man a 2 1/2 attack line for defensive operations until power could be cut to the building. Approximately fifteen minutes after first units arrived on scene it was able to be confirmed that all occupants were out of the residence on vacation. After power was secured SCVFD personnel were tasked with various extinguishment and overhaul operations before being released by Command 14 to return to service.
Thanks also goes to Company 17 who covered a call for Company 20 while on scene of the structure fire.
