Truck Responds to 17 Building Fire
05/25/23 – Just after 2:00 in the afternoon, Truck 29 was alerted as the first due truck to the Whitehall Rec Center in the 4100 BLK of Suitland Rd (Box 17-14) for a reported building fire. En route, PSC advised they were receiving multiple different addresses and that PG Sheriff’s Office was on scene with a working fire. Engine 17 arrived with fire through the roof of a one story pool house. An interior attack was attempted, but due to deteriorating fire conditions, companies began defensive operations. Once the bulk of the fire was knocked down, crews were reassigned inside to knock the remaining fire. Companies remained on scene for approximately 3 hours before returning to service.
