At 2:28 PM on Saturday, 6/06/2020 the Laurel Hill Fire Department was dispatched to 564 Laurel Hill Road for a structure fire. Dispatch began taking multiple calls and transmitted the working fire at 2:33 which added the Mohegan Tribal FAST. Tanker 61 arrived at 2:34 and reported heavy fire to the rear of the garage. Tanker 61 stretched a two and one half inch hose line to the “bravo side” and began knocking fire from the exterior. Car 6 transmitted the second alarm at 2:36 and reported the main house as an exposure problem. Engine 62 stretched a 1.75” line to the front of the garage. Hose Tender 6 laid 500’ of five inch from a hydrant on the corner of Woodland Drive which fed Engine 62. Norwich’s Engine 3, Truck 1, Squad A and Battalion arrived at 2:42. The Battalion assumed Operations while the Squad crew operated the original two and a half on the “Bravo side.” Engine 3 and Truck 1 stretched a 1.75” line to the interior from the “Delta Side” and extinguished fire on the second floor. East Great Plain Rescue 5 provided the cascade and the Norwich Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
