Driveway/Bridge Proves Challenging in getting to a Structure Fire on Creek Road
Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

At 01:09 the Kingwood Township Vol. Fire Company No. 1, the Kingwood Township Vol. Rescue Squad, Frenchtown Fire Department and the Lebanon Township Vol. Fire Company were dispatched to a structure fire on Creek Road. Chief Frank Floyd assumed command at the scene, confirmed a fire in an outbuilding with extension to two nearby surrounding buildings. Engine 16-64 piloted by Lt. Narbonne was the first engine in the driveway and took to fire suppression activities. Deputy Chief Jim Drake was in charge of Operations and quickly had the engine crew knock down the fire to prevent any further extension to the nearby buildings. A second 18 x 12 2 story outbuilding containing fertilizer and weed prevention chemicals became involved on the upper half of the building. Engine 11-61 was the second engine up the driveway. While navigating a tight turn the Engine went off the paved steep driveway and became stuck in the mud caused by the recent rains. FireFighters from Kingwood and Frenchtown assist in stretching 500' of 5 inch down the driveway. Engine 16-61 with Captain Hanley running the engine connected to the 5inch and became the supply engine. Tender 16-71 with Gary Lezak at the helm nurse feed Engine 16-61 to maintain the continuous water flow. In all approximately 4750 gallons of water were utilized to fight the fire and ensure the rubble of the initial shed were fully doused. Many thanks go out to Chief Saharic and his crews from Lebanon Vol. Fire Company for providing a RIT team and ladder truck. A big thank you goes out to our partners in the Kingwood Township Vol. Rescue squad for providing rehab and ensuring the crews were well hydrated.
