Bowling Green Rd Fire Brings out Tanker 10
A large fire on Bowling Green Road, Smithfield caused Smithfield VFD units to call mutual aid to Carrollton VFD for Tanker 10. Upon arrival, Tanker 10 set up nurse operations to supply Smithfield’s Engine 51. Tankers 40 and 30 from Windsor and Rushmere shuttled from a dry hydrant where Smithfield’s Engine 53 had set up a draft site.
Engine 10 and Ladder 10 remained fully staffed throughout the incident with Engine 10 backfilling Station 50 while their units were working the fire.
Unfortunately the house was a total loss with one minor injury to a Smithfield member.
