6 firefighters injured trying to reach blaze

February 11, 1994

Six Mount Airy volunteer firefighters were taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital early yesterday evening after being injured trying to reach a fire near routes 27 and 808.

Rick Baker, first vice president of the Mount Airy Volunteer Fire Company, said the firefighters were sent to the hospital for checkups and had only scrapes and bruises.

Mr. Baker said the volunteers were injured while riding an engine on a long, icy driveway leading to the building that was on fire. Information on how the injuries occurred was not available last night.

A Carroll emergency operations employee said the 911 call for the garage fire came in at 4:20 p.m. Units were still on the scene after 6 p.m.
