On March 18th at approximately 10:53 am, Hughesville Volunteers were alerted to the 14000 block of Petzold Drive in Waldorf for the structure fire. Engine 22 and Tanker 2 responded. While responding units were advised of a dryer fire and the occupants were evacuating the home. Waldorf Engine 32 and Hughesville Engine 22 arrived seconds apart to find a single family home with nothing evident. Chief 3 established Command and conducted a 360 walk around and found light smoke showing from side Charlie. Tanker 2 arrived and picked up the supply line from Engine 32. The crew from Engine 32 and Engine 22 located a small fire contained to the inside of the dryer. The power was secured and the appliance was removed from the residence. No extension was found and Command scaled the assignment back to Engine 32 and Engine 22. Units cleared the smoke from the residence and were placed in service. Units operated on scene for approximately 30 minutes.

Units: Engine 22, Tanker 2
Mutual Aid: Waldorf VFD
