Withers Lane Structure Fire


Fire crews were dispatched to a reported structure fire at 9168 Withers Lane last week.  The 911 call was placed by a neighbor who was looking out her window for what sounded like an alarm going off and reported that their neighbor's house was engulfed in flames.  Engine 60 and District 1 were first on the scene, District Chief Jon Frye established command and confirmed a working structure fire.  The two story home was fully involved upon arrival and the occupants of the home were confirmed to be out of town at the time.  Due to the spread of the fire, crews made a decision to initiate a defensive fire attack immediately.  Engine 60, District 1, Quint 62, Tower 61, Montgomery Quint 73, Mason Tower 52, Madeira-Indian Hill Engine 64, and Blue Ash Medic 13 all responded to the scene with District Chief Jon Frye in command.  A strong initial attack was made with large diameter hose and handlines on the fire by Engine 60 on the Alpha side and Quint 62 on the Charlie side.  Tower 61 and Quint 73 arrived on scene shortly after the initial attack and set up their master streams to attack the fire from above.  The fire was eventually knocked down and extinguished by the hard-working crews on scene and the home was monitored for spot-fires and rekindling material.  All crews did an incredible job from top to bottom and everyone went home safely.  A special thanks to all Mutual-Aid companies and a job well done!
