Fire Alarm received multiple calls of the back half of the house on fire. Calvert County Deputy Chief 5 arrived with heavy fire Side C of the large 2 story home, advising defensive operations. E422 arrived shortly after and CCFRE DC5 requested a Water Supply Task Force and a second alarm after taking temporary command.

First alarm units were told to maintain a 1.5x length distance from the home as the entire Side C was fully involved. Side C collapsed and priority safety message was toned. Units ran out of water pretty quickly with at least one 2.5" line in service for 3 total in service. BC3 took command and planned to flow aerial once water was established. Once the 2nd alarm units arrived, all sides of the 4,000+ sqft. home had collapsed and Calvert TW1 was setting up to flow aerial. Extension to the woods occurred but only limited. Brush 42 was added to help with it.

Second alarm units were eventually put available; transfer crews came from Queen Anne's, Prince Georges, Anne Arundel stations 3, 26, 12, 27, and likely more that I didn't catch.
