At approximately 13:00 hours (1:00 PM) Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company, as well as multiple other units and jurisdictions, were alerted for a report of a barn fire in the 2600 block of Jennings Chapel road. Engine 41 had a quick response with a total of 5 personnel with Engine Tanker 44 not far behind them.

While en-route to the scene units were advised that a firefighter was on the scene with a fully involved barn fire. At that time 41 and 44 noticed a large column of smoke in the area and the 2nd Alarm and tanker task force were requested.

Engine 41 arrived on the scene with approximately a 100' by 50' barn fully involved with multiple exposures and partial wall collapses. The crew from 41 quickly stretched hand lines to protect the exposures until water supply was established. Engine Tanker 44 arrived on the scene and connected to 41 to supply them with the 2000 gallons of water from the on-board tank. As crews protected exposures, the family that owns the farm removed multiple horse driving carts from a nearby building and advised units that no animals were in the structure at the time.

Engine 42 set up a draft site at a pond on the nearby Larriland Farm. A dump site was established at the end of the farm lane on Jennings Chapel road with assistance from units from Damascus, Laytonsville, West Friendship, Clarksville, and Mount Airy. At this time crews began attacking the fire with a combination of Compressed Air Foam and water, while the remainder of the barns walls collapsed.

After a few hours on the scene the fire was extinguished and a Howard County Roads Department Gradall arrived to remove debris from the base of the barn. Crews remained on scene and extinguished hot spots during the overhaul phase.

Crews cleared the scene at 20:00 hours (8:00 PM). Units worked tirelessly for over 7 hours to extinguish the blaze, and then returned to quarters and worked for another hour and a half to place the units back in service.

With the exception of the Paramedic unit, all of the apparatus from Lisbon were fully staffed by volunteers who took time out of their New Years plans to help friends, family and even strangers in their time of need.

Special thanks to Carroll County Engine 12 and Paramedic 19 for filling in at our station and covering our first due during the fire.
