The Magnolia Volunteer Fire Department, along with units from Camden-Wyoming and Little Creek, were alerted for a structure fire in the 1100 block of West Birdie Lane in the Jonathan’s Landing development. Unit 55-16 arrived to find smoke showing. The first arriving truck pulled a handline and began forcible entry to the alpha side. Crews were met with large amounts of heat and smoke while attempting to find the seat of the fire. Shortly after crews entered the building, a Mayday was declared for a firefighter who fell through the floor. The Mayday was cleared moments later when the firefighter was pulled from the basement. He was evaluated by EMS and did not require transport. The crews operated for just over three hours.
