LVFD Tower on Reported Building Collapse

On the evening of July 15, 2012, Tower 10 was alerted as part of the collapse assignment to the 10400 block of 46th Avenue in Beltsville (Company 31). Units arrived on scene to find a three-story garden-style apartment with a partial collapse of the ceiling. Tower 10 set up and the crew used the bucket to survey the building's roof for structural integrity. The crew remained on scene a little over half an hour before going in service.
