2/16/22 Just after midnight, Engine 374 (5 Volunteers) was dispatched as the 4th Due Engine to a reported house on fire in the 1800 blk of Ray Leonard Rd. in Company 33’s 1st Due.  While units were still enroute, Public Safety Communications advised that they were receiving multiple calls and now reporting 1 possibly trapped.  Engine and Tower 33 arrived on scene finding a 1 story duplex with fire showing.  Engine 374 arrived on the scene and completed a split lay with Engine 846 (Largo).  The crew from Engine 374 established RIT in the front yard and completed a 360 degree lap to ensure all possible egresses of the home were cleared.  Engine Companies 33 (Kentland), 38 (Chapel Oaks), and Tower 33 suppressed the fire and completed primary and secondary searches.  Both searches proved negative.  Truck 9 (Bladensbrug), Squad 806 (St. Joseph’s) and Engine 846 checked the Delta exposure for extension and searches with both being negative.  Command scaled the incident back to the units from 33 only and returned the rest of the assignment after about 40 minutes of operation.
