DANIELSON, CT - At 5:30 A.M. on Saturday, August 26th, the Danielson, South Killingly, Attawaugan, Atwood Hose and Moosup FAST with the KB Ambulance were dispatched to 79 Main Street for a couch fire. Car 462 arrived at 5:35 A.M. reporting heavy fire from the rear of the second-floor.

ET 161 laid in from the hydrant on the corner of Main Street and Union Street and positioned in the rear. The crew threw an extension ladder to the second-floor window and advanced their hose line into the building. Tower 161 set up on Main Street and stretched a one-and-three-quarter-inch hose line up in the interior stairs. Engine 161 tied into the hydrant and supplied the tower’s pump.

Engine 165 helped advance lines and then assisted two victims that were removed from the building via ground ladders. Ladder 194 set up in the rear and went to the roof. The crew then took a hand line up the aerial and wet down the roof line that was burning.

Engine 162 helped overhaul the interior. Car 61 had command while Car 65 had operations. Command requested three additional engine companies for manpower which brought in Dayville, Williamsville and East Killingly. The incident was placed under control at 7:06 A.M., and crews held the scene for a while. Two victims were transported to the hospital with smoke inhalation and the Killingly Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
