Box Alarm 1-6 308 Wood Duck Dr
By Firefighter Kevin Carr
July 23, 2020

At 11:14AM the Volunteers of Rescue Fire Company Inc. were dispatched for A "Reported Working Garage Fire" (multiple calls) at 308 Wood Duck Dr. in Cambridge. Units arrived on location with smoke and fire through the roof of a 2 story type IV construction end unit town house. Crews started interior operations advancing 200' of 2" attack line into the structure to extinguish the fire. This aggressive attack is believed to be what saved the rest of the town houses from the fire and left only one with water damage. The extreme heat today coupled with the lack of volunteers, Command requested A 2nd Alarm Assignment bringing additional equipment and personnel to the scene to help with (the work rest cycle) overhaul and clean up. At 2:46PM Command placed the situation under control and all units were placed in service, 1 Firefighter was transported from the scene to the hospital via PM100. The last volunteer cleared Station 1 at 4:35PM after all equipment was fueled, filled, and restocked. This fire remains under investigation via the Maryland State Fire Marshals Office.
(19 volunteers from Rescue Fire Company Inc. responded to this incident).
