At 10:45, Snohomish County F.D. # 7 was dispatched to the report of a residential fire in Ladder 72's first due. I was the Acting Lt. that day, and reported a thermal column 2 miles out. Ladder 72 arrived and reported a 2 story split level residential fully involved on the "A" side and heavy fire blowing out of every window on the 2nd floor of the "C" side.
Battalion 71 arrived and established Command. Engine co. 71 arrived (in an antique pumper!) and stretched a R.A.M. (Rapid Assault Monitor), L72's members stretched another 2.5" handline off of 71's apparatus, and soon after, 74's stretched working line around the back and wyed off with 2 - 1.75" handlines for the "C" side. No exposures, just alot of trees and vegetation. Units working onscene; B71, L72, E71, E73, M74, AIR54, TN71, and TN72.
A total "Engine co. Fire", so not much for us to do except some salvage work following knock down. Homeowners were out of town and nobody got hurt, except for the Probies feelings.............he will heal.
