3/30/2013 – March 30, 2013- At 0417hrs Wicomico Central alerted Station 3 (Fruitland) Station 1 (Salisbury) and Station 15 (Allen) for a reported Garage Fire at 3897 Doe Run Dr in Fruitland. Paramedic B3 arrived and updated central reporting a working fire in a 2 ½ story residential structure. Asst. Chief Shrieves (316) arrived on location in Car 3 reporting a well involved structure fire and established Doe Run command. First arriving Engine 301 with a full crew made an aggressive attack with multiple hand lines in service. Due to the remote location and size of the fire command requested multiple tankers from stations throughout the county. During the height of the fire several explosions occurred in the garage area which forced fire throughout the house, a large amount of wood siding and wood interior trim appears to have created a perfect storm for fire extension. After approximately 2 hours command placed the situation under control with all hands on scene for overhaul. The Maryland State Fire Marshal is investigating the fire.
Units on Scene from Fruitland, Allen, Salisbury, Princess Anne, Parsonsburg, Pittsville, Hebron.
