Members from Savage were preparing for the annual Christmas Eve Santa Claus detail, when the alarm sounded for a fire in Laurel 49's area. As Truck 6 responded units on scene reported fire showing on side C from 4 units, a task force was called for, followed quickly by a 2nd alarm that was transmitted sending E-62 and Chief 6B to the scene. T-6 arrived as 2nd truck and took up a tough spot with limited access on the Charlie side.

Crews made an aggressive interior attack on the fire which was deep seeded in rolls of carpet padding. Additionally staffed crews from Savage brought E-61, Medic 65, Ambulance 66 and chief 6. Engine 61 arrived and supplied water, as well as stretching a back up line. Given the present interior conditions command requested a 2nd alarm bringing multiple units from Howard County and from the surrounding jurisdictions of Anne Arundel and PG Counties to assist with fire attack. Crews were able to extinguish the stubborn blaze within the hour and were then in the process of overhaul and smoke removal. Our new Canteen-6 made its first official run to help with rehab.
