Apartment building fire, Front St in Lonaconing, MD.

Third alarm requested.

14 Fire Dept's on scene and 6 Ambulance Companies (currently). Third alarm will probably bring in out of county resources raising the total FD's to more than 14. Mineral County WV and Garrett County MD units on scene.

Injuries reported and transported to UPMC Cumberland.

MD FiRST is primary radio system TG's 11806 (Alpha 6-1) on scene ops, 11807 (Alpha 6-2) EMS ops, 11808 (Alpha 6-3) Command ops.

Excellent. The only communication issues I heard were people not talking into the radios properly (too soft, too close..etc). AGC can only do so much :)

I didn't hear over the radio if they activated any VRS repeaters. If they did, it wasn't announced over the air. I assume it was just portables direct into the system.
