By Vice President Mike Russ
September 7, 2021

September 7th 2021 - Engine Tanker 717, Rescue Squad 717, Tanker 717, Ambulance 717, Chief 717D responded with Companies 13, 28, HC04, 34 & 40. For the reports of a building fire with one trapped, 23601 Laytonsville Road at 0746hrs. While responding, the Emergency Communications Center were still receiving 911 calls about an explosion with someone still inside. Companies 17 & 13 arrived to find an older farmhouse on a commercial property with severe damage throughout with no active fire, but with obvious signs of an explosion. With the assistance of the crews from 17 & 13, Rescue Squad 717s crew could visibly see a victim in the basement, they made entry and removed the victim. The victim has since been flown to a trauma center. Another patient who was walking away from the house when it exploded has been taken to an area hospital to be evaluated. To say the crews did an amazing job, using split second decision making, is an understatement. The cause of the explosion is still under investigation.
