Around 12:27 pm on Thursday, December 6, Carroll County Emergency Communications Center transmitted the house fire assignment in the 1600 block of Bowersox Road in New Windsor. Shortly thereafter, a nearby Carroll County public works employee called in and advised heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof.

A Tanker Task Force was requested to provide additional water to the rural fire scene and Engine/Tanker 133 from Gamber was dispatched to assist. The 2nd alarm was then transmitted prompting Engine 134 to respond as well.

E134 operated for a short time and then filled Station 10 (New Windsor) while operations continued on the scene.

We thank Baltimore County Engine 56 (Franklin) for covering our first due area while Gamber's units operated in mutual aid areas.

Units: E/T133, E134, DTY13
