Working House Fire among BLS Calls

"B" Shift was kept busy once again by starting the morning off with another working house fire. At 10:57 a.m., Truck 1 was sent to 9819 Circle Drive in St. Thomas Fire Department's first due. Chief 18 arrived with a working fire. The truck crew assisted with opening up the residence and hitting hot spots. Chief 18 released units shortly after noon. This was the fourth working house fire that CFD responded to in a week.

A few hours later Engine 1-4 and the ambulance were sent to Brandon Drive for an auto accident. Ambulance 1-9 arrived on scene to find an auto that struck several parked cars. B Shift ran a daily total of thirteen BLS calls.
