By Coordinator/Public Information Officer William Smith
June 2, 2020

just after midnight 911 center received calls for a house on fire on Tanglewood Drive in Acton Village. House fire assignment was immediately dispatched sending 54 fire and EMS personnel to the scene. Waldorf Engine 31 arrived shortly after dispatch reporting "fire showing" established command, conducted their "360 size up" reporting in the rear "heavy fire requesting the 2nd alarm" assignment. Attack lines were put in place immediately by E31 and E121 slowing the progress of this rapidly spreading fire. Chief 3A (Mills) "assumed command" reporting fire through the roof on all 3 town-homes and "delta" exposure. Command assigned command officers to different floors as division leaders instructing incoming units water supply sources and ordered all 2nd alarm units to stag at the Lowe's parking lot. At 0124 hrs. Within 25 minutes units had the fire out, 2 volunteer firemen from Waldorf were injured; one with burns to his hands transported to Washington DC Burn Unit and the 2nd firemen treated and released on scene. Command returned the 2nd alarm assignment at 0124 hrs. Fire Marshals Office on scene conducting the investigation, Red Cross will assist the families affected. Units cleared the scene at 0308 hrs.

Great Job by all first arriving crews slowing the spread quickly! Fire walls did their job as well!!!
