At approximately 1918, units from Stonewall Jackson, Manassas, Yorkshire, Manassas Park, Lake Jackson, and Bristow were dispatched to Box 1112 for a reported house fire on Lafayette Avenue. Communications reported a chimney fire in a residence.
BC501Y (Wood) arrived on the scene with fire blowtorching out of the chimney and brands blowing across the roof and surroundings. He verified that all occupants were out and completed a walkaround, noting smoke in the structure. E511B and T511 arrived and E511B's crew handjacked a line forward to a nearby hydrant, simultaneously stretching an attack line to the front door.
T511 and E501B went to the roof to open up the chimney while E511B's crew extinguished fire in the fire box. TWR501 checked for extension in the attic. E508 arrived and assumed RIT, and E509 picked up the hydrant. RS501 and E525 stood by for an assignment.
T511 and E501B applied a chimney "snuffer" to extinguish the stubborn fire in the flue. Units verified there was no extension to the rest of the house and the incident was scaled back. All units went ready by 2012.
