1st Due House Fire

On Sunday morning, Members woke up to Chief 27 calling in a house on fire at 1777 Buchanan Valley Road (27-5 Box) on Fire 1. As the Box was being dropped Engine Tanker 27 responded and arrived quickly to find a single story rancher with a working fire in the rear. ET-27 deployed 2 lines and quickly knocked down the fire in the rear. Engine 27 and Special Unit 27 arrived and was assigned to assist in opening up the walls and ceiling to stop the fire from further running the void spaces. Several Neighboring Departments assisted on the fireground in the freezing conditions. BVFD had a total staffing of 17 on the fireground. A special thanks to the BVFD Ladies for having breakfast prepared at the firehouse when the apparatus returned and to Engine Tanker 14 for covering “The Valley” while 27 units worked this house fire.
