“On November 27, 2018 at 2151 hours NFD units were dispatched to a working commercial fire (multiple callers) in the area of 2097 Mt. Vernon Road. This was a 35 x 35 garage that appeared to have fire in one sector of the garage. NFD responded with 2 Engines, 2 Ladders, 2 Medics, a Battalion Chief, and the Fire Chief, in addition to four automatic-aid engines. NFD total strength for this fire was 21 firefighters. Ladder-2 was the first arriving unit, and they initiated an attack with a 2.5 inch line. A second 2.5 inch line was placed into operation after additional units arrived. A defensive fire was ordered due to the age of the building, building construction, and because it was unknown what was being stored in the building. The fire was quickly contained and the fire remains under investigation. No injuries were reported.”
