Engine on Second Alarm in Howard County

 
Engine 104 was alerted for a reported house fire at 10270 Stansfield Rd. in Scaggsville. Units were dispatch around 10:20pm and first arriving units found heavy fire coming from the rear of a two story single family dwelling. While Engine 104's crew was operating at this fire, Communications dispatched a call for smoke in a townhouse at 14800 Belle Ami Dr. With only the ambulance in the station and the transfer crew still en route, LVFD volunteers loaded up A109 and responded to the fire two blocks away. Arriving on the scene, the crew found a fire in the rear second floor bedroom of the two story end-unit townhouse. Engine 311 (Beltsville) was the first arriving engine. The crews from E311 and A109 quickly extinguished the fire. Chief 10B (Pearcy) had command. Engine 104 and A109 cleared their calls at about the same time, around 11:30pm.
