Working Fire in the First Due
Wed, Nov 13, 2013

At 1148, RVFD, along with Sta.600 (Greensboro), Talbot Co. Sta.80 (QAHVFC), and Sta.300 (Denton) were alerted for a house fire at 24268 Race Track Road.  Chief-4 (Winchester)  arrived on the scene advising of a single story, single family dwelling with light smoke showing.  Command was established and with further investigation, the fire was discovered around the chimney/wood stove extending the attic and eaves.  Eng.401 (5 w/Jarboe)  arrived and stretched the initial attack line to the 'charlie side' and was assigned "fire attack".  After a very aggressive initial attack by first in crews, the fire was contained to the "charlie side" of the dwelling.  As other crews arrived, they assisted with final extinguishment, ventilation, and salvage/overhaul.  Good job to all crews involved!  RVFD would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that has a fireplace/chimney and/or a woodstove, to please have it professionally cleaned and/or checked every year before use.  At this time of year, many fires across the country have been blamed on faulty wood stoves or fireplaces/chimneys not being cleaned.
