Fires and Accidents: 31-House Fire

On December 27, 2001 Branchville responded to Beltsville for a house fire. Arriving companies discovered the basement of the old cottage style home ablaze. Beltsville Co. 31 and Branchville entered the front to hold the fire at the basement door in the kitchen while Beltsville Co. 41 entered the basement from the outside to extinguish the flames.

Matt Tomlins of Company 31, Beltsville Volunteer Fire Department, took these photos.
