Just about 10:30pm the Box alarm was sounded for a reported house on fire at 12323 Lanham Severn Rd in Bowie sending Truck 28 as second due truck and engine 48 as forth due engine. Chief 48A running as the Northern Safety Officer arrived to find smoke showing from a one story rancher with a basement and established Command. The first engine got a line in place and started searching for the fire as Truck 28 arrived and started to open up and find the seat of the fire. Chef 28B running as Battalion Chief 2 arrived and assumed Command while Chief 48A took Division 1. The fire was found in the garage with extension into the attic area. Engine 48 arrived and brought a back up line and assisted with extinguishing the fire in the attick. The incident was held with two engines and two trucks within 30 mins. There were not any reported injuries and the fire is under investigation. And all West Lanham Hills units cleared the scene about 12 midnight.
