The tanker task force was requested by command.”
Units from Cresaptown, Bowling Green, LaVale, Frostburg, Corriganville, Midland, District 16, Ellerslie, Eastern Garrett, Ridgeley (W.V.a), the Allegany County Special Operations and an Allegany County EMS Supervisor responded to the incident.
“The fire was quickly brought under control and contained to the sheds with minor cosmetic damage to the nearby residence,” Bowman said.
The county’s special operations fuel team was requested to pump off a fuel tank that was near one of the sheds, Bowman added.
“The fuel leak was contained by firefighters before reaching a stream,” Bowman said.
No injuries were reported in the incident that brought approximately 50 firefighters to the scene.

    That eyesore of a firehall actually serves a purpose besides being a good setting for someone to mismanage money and being a cool clubhouse with a pole. This is good.
