Tower 18, Chief 18, and Chief 18A Run House Fire In Lanham
On September 18th, 2022 after returning from the Air Show stand by, calls came in for the area of 6th street and Main Street in Lanham for the report of a house on fire. Tower 18 was dispatched and responded as the first due truck company. Engine 848 arrived to find a single story, single family house with fire showing through the roof. Tower 18’s crew arrived and did a primary search and started to open up but the ceiling was thick plywood so it made it difficult. Chief 18A had Division 1 and Chief 18 had command. Tower 18 operated approximately 2 hours on the scene and assisted the Fire Marshal cars with overhaul. The fire is still under investigation and no injuries to crews or homeowners were reported.
