On Thursday morning January 7th 2010, Box alarm 01-03 was struck for the apartment fire with multiple people trapped at 142 Willowdale Drive on the West side of Frederick City. First arriving FD300, went on the scene of a three story garden apartment with smoke showing from division 3 and multiple people trapped on balconies. The crew from E12 stretched a line into the building, but due to a malfunction with the line, were passed by the crew from E22. The crew from E22, forced entry into the apartment and found heavy fire throughout the unit. The crew from TWR1 threw multiple ground ladders on the alpha side of the structure and began executing rescues. Upon the arrival of RS3, their crew utilized TWR1's aerial to assist with more rescues. Meanwhile on the charlie side, the crew from E502 and E31 were making grabs from the third floor apartments. TR42 crew went to the roof and began opening up above the fire apartment. E22 had the fire knocked down quickly and crews began overhauling. GREAT JOB to all operating at the scene.
