On Sunday September 27th at 1253 the Hillsborough Fire District was dispatched to Bigley Road for a possible grill fire with extension to the residence. County Communications updated immediately stating they had received multiple calls stating the fire had extended to the entire rear of the structure. Chief 36 had box 36/37 struck and confirmed RIT 28 was dispatched. Asst. Chief 37 arrived and advised a working fire. Chief 36 arrived shortly after and established command advising County to strike a second alarm with a fully envolved Charlie side (rear of home) fire extending into the attic. Deputy Chief Heider took operations as Tender 48 arrived. 48 was directed to pull speed lays and attack the fire from the rear of the home leaving the front of the residence clear for engines and ladders. Engine 37-2, Tower Ladder 37 and Ladder 36 all took their positions in the front of the residence. Ladder 36 and Engine 36 crews were ordered interior for an initial attack but were pulled out shortly after by evacuation tones due to a roof collapse. Master streams and exterior lines were used to extinguish the fire. The family’s cat was found alive and brought out to the homeowner who arrived home after the fire began. Crews remained on scene until shortly before 1700 assisting the Fire Marshal’s Office and salvaging items with the homeowners. A great job was done by all District and mutual aid companies based on the amount of fire on arrival.Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 001 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 002 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 003 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 004 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 005 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 006 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 007 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 008 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 009 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 010 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 011 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 012 Structure Fire - 09-27-2015 - 415 Bigley Road 013
