Yesterday Afternoon, Engine Tanker 27 was alerted on the Box Alarm mutual aid to Franklin County, 11388 South Mountain Road for a House Fire. First arriving units went of the scene with fire showing. From previous pre-planning it was known that it was a vacant house with “Collyer’s Mansion” conditions through the structure. Chief 16 ordered a defensive attack to knock down the bulk of the fire with exterior lines and ladder pipes. A tanker shuttle was set-up to haul water from near-by SMRC and a pond. Chief 27 was assigned as the Water Supply Officer. ET27 hauled 10 loads of water (25,000 gallons), as did several other tankers in the shuttle. The back step crew assisted with extinguishment and overhaul. Crews from Adams, Franklin and Frederick Counties were on the scene for several hours before clearing.
