Co. 17 units arrived to find a double wide house trailer fully involved and began an exterior attack. C15 arrived as the first command officer and assumed the Black Ankle Road command. Units worked quickly to extinguish the fire and treat a resident for burn injuries. The patient was transported to an area hospital by MSP Trooper 1. A159 (DFRS) also responded on the call to assist as an additional BLS unit. E152 assisted with fire extinguishment and overhaul activities until being released by command.
