TheBravestOnline.com first posted this video from a house fire in Prince George’s County, Maryland two weeks ago (Sunday, September 5). The fire was at 4604 Davis Avenue in Boulevard Heights. Here are details from Kentland33.com (where there are some still pictures posted):
Around midnight, the box alarm was transmitted for the house on fire in the 4600 block of Davis Avenue in Boulevard Heights, Maryland. This assignment brought Truck Company and Chief 33 with seven volunteers. Duty Chief 800 was the first fire department unit to arrive and reported fire showing “from pretty much everywhere”. Rescue Squad 27, Truck Company 37 and Engine Companies 26 and 8 arrived next and went to work. Chief 33 arrived seconds later and was assigned to work with the crews on division one. Two hand lines were positioned on side “A” and an aggressive, coordinated attack was carried out to quickly extinguish the fire. Truck Company 33 arrived as this was being carried out and assumed the Rapid Intervention duties. The crew placed portable ladders, assured egress points and developed a rescue plan for the home. Volunteers from Kentland operated for approx. 35 minutes before the incident was scaled back.
