By Chief Charlie Green Jr
April 3, 2021

In the early morning hours of April 3, 2021, Sykesville Box 12-3 was alerted for an apartment fire with possible people trapped. Gamber's Engine 131 was alerted as part of the initial assignment. Before units arrival, Chief 12 asked for a tanker task force also adding Engine/Tanker 133. Engine 131 responded with 4 firefighters and Engine/Tanker 133 followed shortly with 2.

Units from Sykesville arrived with a 3 story apartment building with fire coming from a basement apartment. The working fire assignment was dispatched and Gamber's Engine 134 was added to the call.

The crew from Engine 131 arrived and went to work on the apartment above the fire apartment. All occupants were out of the structure with one person being treated by medics on scene. Engine/Tanker 133 assisted with water supply as no hydrants were in the direct area. Engine 134 arrived and was assigned to the Rapid Intervention Team (RIT.) Engine 131's and Engine 134's crews were cycled in and out multiple times for both fire attack and overhaul operations.

Crews from Gamber were on scene assisting until 8:30 am. Baltimore County Engine 413 (Reisterstown) filled in the Gamber Station and handled a fire alarm and a medical call.
