B-3(FF R. Hitchcock) and B-3A (Sgt. S. Stockwell) responded to the scene within seconds of dispatch. Near the area of brush fire crews noted a column of smoke coming from the rear of the Body Shop. B-3 arrived on scene and started attacking the brush fire threating George's Body Shop, shortly followed by B-3A's arrival. Engineer Winners advised Sgt. Stockwell that a shed was getting ready to "go" with the brush fire. At that time C-3 (W. Johnson) was responding to the scene and was advised by B-3A that they would diverting from George's to Fox Ridge and a Pumper Tanker would be needed. Once B-3A arrived on the opposite side it quickly set up and started to extinguish what they could. Unfortunately the hose on BX-3A was not enough to keep the fire from extending through the bottom of the shed into the interior. At this time C-3 advised for additional engines as E-33 (FF C. Jones) was assisting B-3 and E-32 (FF M. Bruner) was responding from the Leonardtown area. E-61, E-73, E-132, B-13 responded and E-10 handled the fill-in (also coming upon another small brush fire on Great Mills Rd. prior to arrival.) T-7 was also added due to special service needs. E-132 and B-13 arrived on scene. E-132 laid out the supply line followed by the arrival of E-32 to set the supply up. Crews pulled two, 1 3/4 inch lines with one line going to the front of the shed and one to the rear. Chainsaws were used to vent and gain access to the 20 X 12 ft long shed. C-3 advised units to watch for any extension to one of George's Garages which nearly extended to the building but, was knocked by crews before any serious damage was caused. The fire was reported under control and all units operated on scene for approximately 2 Hrs completing salvage, overhaul and a general clean up upon termination of Command by C-3, before returning to service.
