Around 1700 hrs, all three salisbury stations along with station 3(Fruitland) were alerted for the report of a house on fire. The deputy chief(Scott) went on scene with a 3 story single family, with smoke showing from the second and third floors. Engine 16 arrived side A and immediately recognized an issue, the closest hydrant was a little over a block away. A split second decision was made to improvise, deploying a line and tactic better known as a "bundle load". The lineman disconnected and pulled the 250' preconnect, while the driver retrieved his gated "Y" connecting it to his 3" supply line and dropped it with his officer in the front yard. The engine then reverse laid to the closest hydrant, approx 350' away. Trucks 2 and 1 arrived simultaneously positioning respectively on opposite sides of the house. Crews gained entry, searched all floors as they went, located a kitchen fire on the second floor and extinguished the same. Call was placed under control in approx 40 minutes. No injuries were reported. Scene turned over to the Maryland state fire inspector for investigation.
