Structure Fire off Tower Road
March 15th, 2018
On the evening of March 15th, 2018 the career personnel at Station 21-A were alerted by a citizen at the station door of a possible structure fire in the vicinity of Independence Road and Tower Road. The career personnel quickly reacted to the alert and assessed the situation to discover an active fire in a single family home that was under construction. The career staff did an excellent job to request additional units from the county immediately and filled the assignment. Engine 21 was 1st on scene with significant fire conditions on the rear of the home. The fire was knocked down quickly with the assistance of volunteers and career personnel from Orange County and from Spotsylvania County. Crews were on scene for numerous hours to ensure the fire was completely extinguished.
Engine 21 was on display for public viewing and recruitment information, Firefighter Alex Campbell, in full gear, shows equipment needed to fight fire safely. Those that have the time to volunteer can call the office of the Orange County Fire and EMS at 540.672.7044 for more information about the departments and contact information.
