House Fire 9/5/03

 

Occupants of an early morning house fire were awoken by a man on his way to work.  Mulvane 911 dispatcher received a cell phone call from Terry Knapp of a house fire at 4:42 am.  Dispatchers could hear the calling party beating on the door to the residence and shouting for them to get out.  First arriving units found the garage fully involved in flames.  Both of the occupants and the family dog had got out of the house safely thanks to the efforts of Terry.

Initial response from Mulvane Fire Department was the Duty Officer, Engine 402 / 4 firefighters,  Engine 403 / 5 firefighters, Rescue 407 / 2 firefighters, Pickup 405 / 2 firefighters, EMS Unit 351, and the M.E.S. on-call Supervisor for a total of 19 personnel.  Derby Fire Department responded with a Chief, 8 firefighters and a Quint on a mutual aid request.

 

The fire rapidly spread from the garage into the attic area of this split level home.  The interior fire was contained to the kitchen and the upstairs master bedroom.

 

The home had wood shake shingles that had been covered with felt paper and composite shingles.  This caused problems for the firefighters in extinguishing the fire in the attic.  Rolls of carpet and other household goods had also been stored in the attic.

Three Mutual Aid departments were called to help with extinguishment and to provide relief to the initial firefighters.  Udall fire department was called to standby at our station, and was eventually brought into the scene to assist.  Sedgwick County Fire Department responded with a Mobile Air unit to help re-supply air packs and then later was requested to send an Engine to assist with manpower.  Derby Fire had been requested for manpower upon arrival of the Duty Officer.

Mulvane EMS crews assisted with rehab and changing out our Air Packs.  EMS Driver Nick Woods shown helping with Air Packs, is also a firefighter for Wellington Fire Department.

   

Duty Officer Aaron Mattson assumed Incident Command.  Jim McDaniels was the Public Information Officer.  Sumner County Dist. #9 sent a crew to assist with overhaul later in the day.

 

 Cause of the fire is still under investigation.  35 firefighters assisted with this call.
