Engine 811, clearing the other fire, arrived as the fourth engine and supplied Engine 315 from Bel Air, positioned on side “charlie” as well. Medic 892 treated and transported one civilian employee with non-life threatening injuries. A special call for two additional engines was made, which brought Engine 812 and Chief 8. Air Unit 861 also responded as part of the working fire profile. In all, over 20 Joppa-Magnolia Volunteers operated on this one alarm fire.
