At 2:47 a.m. on March 19, 2018, Walkersville Volunteer Fire Company responded to a house fire in the 12000 block of Woodsboro Pike.
Engine 161 arrived on the scene to find a two story house with heavy fire on the Charlie side. The crew pulled a 2-inch line to begin fire attack and established command in the attack mode.
Engine 94 arrived on the scene to lay out from the road back the drive way.
Quint 11 arrived on the scene on the delta side. The crew laddered the roof and began opening up the side of the house due to the extension of the fire into the attic.
Other units arrived on the scene to take their assigned positions.
Battalion Chief 901 arrived on the scene and took over command. Command quickly requested the Rapid Intervention Team and tanker task force due to the large amount of fire and non hydrant area.
