1911: Fire Box 703 was alerted for a house fire in the 800 block of Dr. Jack Rd. Water Witch, Rising Sun (2 engines and Tanker 8) and CCDES Paramedic 1. Chief 7 arrived to find a one story single family dwelling with an attached garage, fire showing from all sides of the garage and a burn patient in the front yard. Engine 7 arrived, the crew stretched two handlines, one to knock the garage and one to make entry to check for extension. Crews from E7 and E813 found extension to the attic area above the kitchen and quickly extinguished all visible fire. Truck 72's crew threw ladders and cut a ventilation hole in the roof. The garage, which contained two vehicles and a pick up truck in the driveway continued to burn for sometime before being extinguished due to being feed by race fuel. Other crews on scene assisted with opening up, checking for extension, the auto fires, ventilation and utilities. Tankers 8 and 72 supplied the scene. The homeowner was transported in P793 to the landing zone that E73 had set up for MSP Trooper 1. The cause is believed to be a static charge that occurred during the refueling process of a race car in the garage.
