On July 17, 2023 at 2:27pm, Delaware City Fire Company was dispatched to assist Christiana Fire with a residential structure fire in the 500 block of Mason Drive in Rutledge. 15-8D (A/C Sands) arrived to find a 2 story, wood-framed, single family dwelling with smoke and fire showing from the attached garage. Quint 15 operated as the Second Due Engine, supplying Engine 12 and deploying a second handline into the structure. A-15 responded as the standby ambulance and 15-8D ran the command post. Crews operated for an hour and a half in the 90+ degree temperatures but were able to prevent major extension into the home. There were no civilian or fire service injuries. Thank you to Volunteer Hose Co. for covering our station during the incident.
