Working House Fire

Thursday, July 2, 2015

At 2114 this evening, the DFD was alerted for a working house fire at 1 E. Huntington Circle. The first unit on scene was the stand-by engine, relatively close by at the Dover High School football game. The engine reported a two-story house, fully involved. Deputy Chief Mark Hall soon arrived on scene and assumed command. Additional companies were requested and a second alarm was transmitted due to the house being located in a non-hydrant protected area of our district. An evacuation was ordered shortly thereafter by command due to a partial structural collapse. The scene was finally placed under control and turned over to the State FMO after several hours of work and overhaul. The DFD wishes to thank the Harlty VFC, Cheswold VFC, Marydel VFC, Little Creek VFC and the Camden VFC for their support.
