Ladder to Walden for 2 Alarm Structure Fire

At 1934 hours on August 13th, MFD was dispatched as a mutual aid request from Walden for one ladder to the scene of a working structure fire. MFD members were out drilling at VCHS with their extended stretch (600′) hose packs when the alarm came in. Members quickly began packing up drill while the truck crew made their way to the ladder. Car 1 (Pressler) and Truck 221 arrived in Walden quickly to find the fire building smoked out with fire in the basement. Walden crews had quickly knocked down the smokey fire and Montgomery crews assisted in overhaul and ventilation of the structure before being released to return to drill.
