Dumpster Fire - Wicomico Board of Education at 1132 Jersey Rd.
Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Around 1120 hrs Station 16 was alerted for a dumpster fire at 1132 Jersey Rd. Engine 16 was out doing an After the Fire Program so the duty crew from Station 2 handled the call. Engine 2 responded with 2-20E and two. Engine 2's crew could see heavy dark smoke while en-route to the call. Engine 2 arrived on the scene and found a large commercial dumpster well involved. Engine 2's crew deployed an attack line and started their attack. As the crew was making their attack they found that the dumpster was full of old projectors and office furniture. Lt. Rathel requested Engine 1-1 to respond to the scene for water and manpower. Engine 2's crew briefly lost water and the fire was allowed to build back up. Engine 2's MPO laid out a 3 inch supply line and waited for the arrival of Engine 1-1. Engine 1-1 arrived and supplied Engine 2 and they sent their manpower to the scene for assistance. Bulk of the fire was knocked and crews remained on scene for mop up.
