At 5:11 pm on Tuesday, 2/23/2021 the Moosup Fire Department with mutual aid from Plainfield, Central Village, Atwood Hose, Oneco, South Killingy/Danielson FAST and the Moosup Ambulance responded to 41 Highland Street for smoke coming from the third floor windows of a house. Ladder 194 arrived at 5:18 confirming smoke from the third floor windows. They flew the aerial to the roof and stretched a 1.75” hose line through the front door to the third floor where they found a room burning. Car 94 assumed command at 5:19 and put operations on QV Tac 6. Engine 196 hit a hydrant at the corner of Daggett and Linnell Street, then laid about 1,000 feet of 5 inch supply line which fed Ladder 194. Tower 195 set up on the Alpha/Bravo corner and pulled the soffit on the Bravo side. Car 394 reported the main body of fire knocked down at 5:31 while crews continued overhauling and began salvage work. Command placed the incident under control at 5:53 and had Quinebaug Valley Emergency Communications notify the American Red Cross for 2 adults.
