First arriving units found fire showing from a 1 1/2 story single family home and the RID was started. Chief 11-1 established the Old Annapolis Road Command, with Chief 15 assigned to fire attack. Engine 152's crew deployed a second attack line, knocking fire on the exterior and attic voids before moving inside.
