Building Fire in Beltsville

 
While career staffing were dispatched for a mutual-aid run in Howard County, the box alarm was dispatched for the building fire at 11323 Old Baltimore Pike in Beltsville. Units arrived on scene with heavy fire showing. Command quickly requested a 2nd alarm. The incident involved heavy fire loads, including live ammunition, and resulted in a defensive attack. Tower 10 provided critical support for water tower operations. The volunteer crew operated on the scene for over 6 hours. (Photos courtesy of Billy McNeel, Steve Flora and Chief Schwartz)
