Crews from Company #11 responded to 2 house fires on Friday night. The first occurred around 7:30PM in Frederick City. ET114 was dispatched as part of the Rapid Intervention Assignment for a basement fire on Rock Creek Drive, but was diverted to establish a landing zone for Trooper #3, who was called to medevac a burn victim from the scene. The MSP helicopter was landed in the parking lot of the old Frederick Town Mall, where EMS crews met them with the patient. ET114 was then sent to Station #1 to cover any additional calls.

For the second incident, Quint11 (Q11) was dispatched as part of the first alarm assignment for a house fire in Lewistown at around 9:00PM. This was a single family home with fire found on the first and second floors by first arriving units. Deputy Chief Barrick was one of the first officers to arrive on scene and was assigned as the Fire Attack/Operations Supervisor. Upon arriving on scene Q11 set up ground ladders on each side of the structure, and was then directed to open the roof for ventilation. Q11 and crew remained on the scene for approximately 3 1/2 hours to assist with overhaul and lighting for investigators from the Fire Marshal's office, once the fire was extinguished.
