Structure Fires-Sand Dune Drive
Tuesday, March 13, 2018

RBVFC assisted by Sta. 82 & 70 on the intial alarm responded to a reported house fire on Sand Dune Drive off of East Lake Drive in South Rehoboth on Tuesday morning at approx 0300 hrs. Arriving units found 2 large Beach Homes well involved with a strong Northeast wind blowing off the ocean moving the flames towards 2 other structures. Crews put a Master Stream and handline in service to slow the progress while setting up Tower Ladders and establishing water. Limited access to the homes made for only limited equipment to be placed near the scene. At the height Tower 86, Ladder 82, Tower 70 and Quint 70 all had their Aerial Devices applying water to stop the inferno. Three other residence's had heat and smoke damage only, due to the efforts of over 100 firghters on the scene from all over Sussex County which prevent the homes from being destroyed. Tower 86 was put at draft to supply water to boost the supply and was needed as a Rehoboth Engine was damaged at the fire due to heat and had mechanical issues that required the unit to be pumped straight thru. One minor injury was reported, with the Delaware State Fire Marshal investigating the Multi-Million Dollar Blaze. RBVFC woud like to Thank everyone who assisted with the call along with our Auxillary. Thank You to Terry Jester and Patty Marvel, Danny & Don Don Mitchell, Ronnie Blizzard for sharing their photos.
