At approximately 1440 hours Wednesday, 8 September 2021, Engine 7 and Truck 7 were dispatched to the 25500 block of Point Lookout Road in Leonardtown for the House Fire. Engine 73 and Truck 7 responded shortly after dispatch with 9 Volunteers. First arriving units found a two car garage to the rear of a single family home with fire showing. Engine 73 arrived and picked up the supply line of Engine 11. The crew of Engine 73 stretched a second line and assisted with fire suppression. Truck 7 arrived on the scene with the crew assisting the Engine Companies with opening up. The fire was placed under control within 20 minutes and the assignment was scaled back. The units from Station 7 remained on the scene and assisted with overhaul before picking up and returning to service. Engine 73 returned to quarters at 1606 hours. Chief 1B (Trossbach) held the Leonardtown Command.
While on the air returning to quarters, Truck 7 was requested to transfer to Charles County Station 1 (LaPlata VFD), while they operate on a house fire.
