Structure Fire on Delaware Avenue
Friday, March 17, 2023

at 00:59 Hours on Friday 17 March 2023, Salisbury firehouses 1, 2, and 16, as well as Wicomico County stations 3 (Fruitland), 5 (Hebron), and 14 (Sharptown) were alerted for a structure fire in the 100 Block of Delaware Avenue
Assistant Chief 1 was the first arriving unit and a report of a working fire with advancement into the attic area was relayed
crews advanced preconnected hoselines into the structure in an effort to control the fire - multiple lines were in service but having difficulty penetrating into the seat of the fire - after several minutes of advancing fire conditions, Assistant Chief 1 (Incident Commander) ordered an immediate evacuation of the structure and transitioned the operation to defensive
an elevated master stream from Truck 2, aided by exterior hoselines, were able to knock down the attic fire - once safe to re-establish interior, offensive operations, crews completed extinguishment and began overhaul operations
cover-up details were provided by Station 74 (Delmar, engine) and Station 7 (Pittsville, truck)
