Early in the morning on Saturday morning York Village Fire and York Beach Fire were dispatched to 103 Scotland Bridge Rd. in the York Village District for a report of a shed on fire. Responding companies reported heavy smoke visible from a distance out, referred to as a “loom up” or a “header” this is a good indicator that the crews will have a fire to fight on their arrival. The shed was approximately 14’x 14′ and fully involved upon arrival of Engine 4. A fire hydrant was located directly across the street from the driveway and Capt. Scott Apgar was able to hand lay a 4″ line right to the hydrant while FF Moore took over the pump. Engine 4 crews stretched an 1 3/4″ and a
2 1/2″ and the fire was darkened down in 10 minutes. There was no fire extension to any exposures, there were no injuries to firefighters or civilians. Companies remained on scene for several hours for overhaul and fire cause determination. The cause of the fire is still under investigation by York Village Fire Deputy Chief Dave Apgar and York Police. Here are a few shots we were able to grab late into the incident.
