25/July/2015 Structure Fire A Shift

Incident # 15-04210 At 04:21 Saturday morning 25-July a singlewide mobile home located in the 300 block of McCune Branch Lane was destroyed. Firefighters arrived to find the structure fully involved. The roof had already collapsed and a LP tank at the end of the residence was venting. Crews deployed two 1-3/4 handlines from Engine 23. One was used to cool the LP tank, while the second line was used to extinguish the remainder of the burning debris. Very little of the structure remained. The fire was under control within 10 minutes, but crews were on the scene for 2-1/2 hours. The LP tank was moved to a safe distance from the residence and allowed to empty. No injuries were reported and no one was at home when the fire occurred. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Engine 18, Engine 23, Tender 3, Tender 15, Tender 18, Tender 23, Medic 18, Battalion 1 and Car 12 responded. Firefighter-Paramedic Mike Bascom served as Incident Commander.
