Company 1 (Anmoore VFD/EMS), Engines 511 (Bridgeport), and 71 and 121 (Stonewood) were alerted for a structure fire on Ash Street in Anmoore. Engine 72 responded with four personnel in three minutes. Engine 11 arrived to find a single-story modular home with fire showing and all occupants out. Crews placed a line in service and began an interior attack. Engine 72 arrived on scene as third-due and sent its manpower to assist interior crews with a second handline and provided water to units on scene due to hydrant issues. Engine 123 arrived and laid approximately 800 feet of four-inch LDH from another hydrant. Crews found fire running the entire attic space as well as the interior and exterior of the dwelling. The well-advanced fire mixed with new construction and deteriorating structure conditions forced crews to go exterior for a short time due to most of the roof collapsing. The deck gun off of 511 and another handline were then placed in service for a defensive attack before once again transitioning back into the interior to finish extinguishing the fire. After a lengthy overhaul and clean up, crews returned home just before 0930. Anmoore Medic 18 was on scene for standby.
