At 22:28 hours on Thursday January 27th, 2011, Company 16 (Johnstown VFD), Engine 71 (Nutter Fort VFD), and Engine 121 (Stonewood VFD) were alerted for a Structure Fire on Rt. 20 just before Raccoon Run outside of Romines Mills. Engine 71 (w/7-DC Richards) hit the streets seconds later with Tanker 7 (w/2-FF/EMT Cockrell) not far behind. JTVFD E161 and E71 arrived on the scene to find a 2-story dwelling with heavy fire showing from the 2nd floor. Tanker 3 (Lost Creek VFD) and Upshur County Co. 6 (Warren District VFD) were then added to the BOX. E71 and E161's crew placed a 1 ¾" cross lay in service and made entry through the front door while E71 laid the 3" supply line to E161 and dropped the 4" LDH for E122 to pick up for water supply. Upon entry, crews encountered heavy fire and heat conditions and a 2nd 1 ¾" cross lay was placed in service. Other crews assisted with fire attack and ventilation while the tankers supplied units on scene with water. The fire was placed under control within 30 minutes. Crews also checked the residence downstairs for any extension with negative findings. After a lengthy overhaul process, crews returned home by 01:30. An outstanding job was done by interior attack crews for making fast work of the fire.
