This morning just after 10:00 Hours, Bethany Beach, Millville, Roxana, Frankford, Rehoboth Beach, and Sussex County EMS were alerted for a structure fire. 70-8 responded with Chief Martin, upon responding, the EOC advised the chief that they were receiving calls that the fire was now through the roof. Chief Martin arrived to find the same conditions as advised by the EOC in a three-story single family home and requested a 2nd Alarm upon arrival Quint 70-5 with Assistant Chief Brackin arrived and assumed the first engine and made an interior attack of the fire. Tower 70 arrived and performed primary searches. Truck 84 arrived and did secondary searches and the outside team opened the roof and ventilated the structure. Quint 70-4 assumed the RIT until 76-1 arrived to take over the RIT duties. The Second Alarm brought Ocean City (Chiefs 51 and 52, E4, and E5) and Dagsboro to the scene. Strong initial interior attack and truck worked allowed units to hold the fire to the home of origin. Great work by all companies. One minor injury to a fire fighter was sustained and transported to the local medical facility. Command placed the scene under control and turned the scene over to the State FMO.
