Company 11 (Spelter VFD), Engines 41 (Lumberport VFD), 71 and 101 (Shinnston VFD), and Marion 103 (Monongah VFD) were alerted for a structure fire on Meadowbrook Road near the S turns. Truck 7 staffed with three responded in three minutes. Engine 112 arrived to find a single-story abandoned commercial building heavily involved with fire through the roof. Crews utilized the deck gun to knock down some of the fire before pulling multiple handlines to begin an interior attack. Unit 74 and Tanker 7 also responded with an additional two personnel. Truck 7 arrived on scene and supplied manpower for interior attack before switching to an exterior attack due to being pulled out for structural deterioration. Truck 7 was then positioned in the front of the structure for aerial master stream operations. Water supply issues were also experienced with a hydrant failure and possible water line break near the scene. Dump tank operations began with Engine 101 drafting and supplying Truck 7 and Engine 112 with Tankers 11, 7, and Marion 103 supplying water. After a lengthy overhaul and clean up, all Company 7 apparatus returned home at 0332 hours. Anmoore Medic 18 was on scene for standby with no injuries reported.
