By Firefighter/EMT-B Kyle Compton
October 14, 2015

Early in the morning on October 14, 2015 at 0035 hours, Company 2 along with surrounding stations were alerted to respond to a single family house fire. During the response, units were advised of subjects trapped in the house. Engine 22 and Tanker 2 responded on dispatch. Special Ops Chief 17A arrived on scene first and advised incoming units of a single story house with fire showing, and confirmed subjects trapped. Shortly after 17A's arrival, Truck 3, Engine 22, Chief 3A, Tanker 2, and Chief 3B arrived on scene almost all simultaneously. Despite the strong, initial work of fire suppression and immediate search of the survivable areas by the crews, it was discovered there were two individuals who had perished in the fire. The fire was extinguished and units remained on scene to assist the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office with their investigation. Company 2 and Company 3 units cleared around 0630.
