Structure Fire in Snowy Conditions - Hall Drive, Salisbury
Monday, February 8, 2010

The Salisbury Fire Department stations 16 and 1, as well as Station 3 Fruitland were alerted for a structure fire just before 6pm on February 8th on Hall Drive. En route, dispatch reported the fire had started in the kitchen and had extended into the living room. Station 16 FF David Black arrived on scene via personal vehicle and advised dispatch via cell all occupants were out of the structure and fire was visible on Side A. Assistant Chief 1, (Tull), arrived on location with a single story, wood frame home with smoke and fire showing on side A. Occupant reported he was preparing to fry fish when he walked away to use the restroom; when he returned to the kitchen, the grease in the pan was on fire. The occupant attempted to extinguish the fire by placing a second pan on top, without success. Engine 16-1 crew advanced a handline through the front door and began suppression operations. Engine 1 advanced a back-up line into the structure and assisted Engine 16-1. Truck 1 was requested to remove the gable and vents. Due to the fire extension and the large fire load present inside the structure, extensive overhaul was conducted. Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office was requested to the scene. All units returned to service without incident. Units: AC1, DC1, E161, PM1, PM16, E1, TK1, TOW16, T16 Photo by: Mark Filippelli
