By Assistant Chief Thomas Buckmaster
May 24, 2021

On Monday May 24th, 2021 at 2239 hours Chief 7, Chief 7A, Engine 72, Rescue Squad 7, Tanker 7, and Rehab 7 responded to 13860 H.G Trueman Road for the building fire. First arriving units arrived to find a single-story strip mall with fire throughout. Engine 72 assisted in extinguishment and performed a primary search of the Veterinary Medical Center to successfully locate and remove two animals. Chief 7 operated as the "Division A Supervisor" and Chief 7A operated as the "Exposure Group Supervisor". Company 7 units cleared at 0430 hours.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal, in conjunction with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives determined a candle being used by a homeless person taking refuge inside a camper trailer located to the rear of the building ignited combustibles before spreading to the adjacent structure. The subject inside the 25-foot trailer was able to escape and temporarily fled from the area. Investigators worked throughout the night and into the early morning hours and identified the 38-year-old man after being transported to a local hospital for an unrelated medical emergency.

Units: Chief 7, Chief 7A, Engine 72, Rescue Squad 7, Tanker 7, Rehab 7
