6/30/17: At 0209 Company 20 was alerted for a confirmed structure fire on Old Cheat Road. Engine 201 responded with 4 members followed closely by Unit 202 with 2 members and was given initial size-up of a confirmed mobile home fire which was endangering an apartment building 15-20 feet from the involved structure. Engine 201 arrived on scene, 20-1 established command and confirmed a fully involved trailer with exposure to an apartment building and possibility of power line hazards, and placed (1) 1 3/4″ attack line in place for initial fire attack. Engine 123, Tanker 172 and Unit 202 arrived soon after Engine 201 and began various fire attack, water supply and exposure protection tasks. Due to the continued danger to the exposure, 20-1 then called for additional manpower and two (2) additional tankers for water supply (Co. 15 and Co. 16). Although the fire building ending up being a total loss, the quick and efficient actions of all units on scene resulted in only minimal siding damage and loss of one window to the exposure building.
