At 12:47 hours on Saturday 24 November, units from the A Platoon were alerted for a natural cover fire endangering a structure. The assignment was quickly upgraded to a dwelling response based on additional information provided by our dispatch center.
On arrival units found a large volume of fire consuming the deck and threatening to extend into the dwelling. The first arriving members deployed a hand line and made an excellent stop on the fire. Damage was limited to the deck and some siding on the house.
No doubt the A Platoon made a great stop and they rightfully deserve a “tip of the helmet.”
