Two Firefighters Injured in Warren County Blaze

11 July 2019 Front Royal/Warren County News

Two firefighters were injured late last week while fighting a Warren County blaze.

Warren County Fire and Rescue units were dispatched just before 7:30 a.m. Friday (7/11/2019) to 24 Markham Farm Road, where they arrived to find smoke coming from a home’s attic and first floor. When first responders entered, the floor of the residence collapsed, causing two firefighters to fall into the building’s basement. They were able to self-evacuate, and were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The fire was brought under control after about 15 minutes, and caused an estimated $85,000 in damages. Afterwards, Fire Chief Richard Mabie ordered a detailed review of this incident’s response and action plan, and the “near-miss” of the two emergency responders who were injured.
