Ayr Ontario firefighters were toned out for a house fire at 1221 Industrial road at 3:52 am on January 29. Cambridge dispatch advised responding units that the house was well involved and all occupants were out. Ayr Car 2 requested New Dundee and Box 690 Canteen while enroute. Ayr responded with two pumpers, two tankers, and their rescue.

Car 2 arrived on scene with heavy fire in the middle of the large bungalow. P4 pulled into the driveway of the house and stretched lines to the front and rear while P1 setup for relay pumping form port-a-tanks out on the road. Cambridge’s tanker was also requested at this time.

New Dundee Pump 21 setup at a nearby reservoir and filled tankers. The temperature was a frigid -35 F with light winds. The large bungalow had a shake roof. The fire quickly spread through the house. Kitchener’s tanker was requested as the fifth tanker. P1 froze up early in the fire. Cambridge’s tanker replaced the pumper until portable pumps could be set up to feed P4. By this point most of the tankers inlets were frozen and tankers had to be filled from the top. Command requested Kitchener P5 to the scene to act as the relay pumper. The pumper is fully enclosed and had no issues with freezing up. The fire was declared under control by 10:00. Damage was pegged at $700,000.

No one was home at the time of the fire, but the fire did have a significant head start prior to arrival.  On arrival FF’s had heavy fire conditions out the front door pushing them back unable to gain entry.  Seven area departments arrived on scene mutual aid.  Hydrant lines were about 1 mile away from the building.  It took about 90 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

5 residents; 2 adults and 3 children were left homeless.  The fire was a total loss.

A Rentz Drive home was heavily damaged by a mid-day fire Saturday, 28-December. At 14:18, Colleton County (SC) Fire-Rescue was notified of smoke coming from the attic of a home at 355 Rentz Drive near the rural Hudson Mill Community. Engine 1 arrived six minutes later to find flames across the roof of the one story residential dwelling. Firefighters used a deck gun to knock down the heavy flames, then deployed multiple handlines to combat the fire. The roof collapsed shortly after fire units arrived. Crews had the fire under control in less than 30 minutes, but were on the scene for 2-1/2 hours. Water supply was conducted with a tender shuttle. Engine 26 setup drafting operations at a dry hydrant in a pond approximately one mile from the scene.

All of the occupants were able to safely exit the building when they discovered the fire. Most of the fire damage was isolated to the attic and roof, but the living area suffered water damage and drop down debris from the attic. Many personal items were salvageable, but the home suffered substantial damage. The origin of the fire appears to have been electrical in nature. The Charleston Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family.
