Companies 19, 29, and 22 dispatched to 3943 Powells Valley Road in Jefferson Township for a report of a structure fire with entrapment. Truck 22 responded with 7 and Engine 22 with 5. Chief 19-1 on scene with Engine 19 confirmed a working fire with entrapment. Companies 216 and 21 were added to the box. Chief 19 arrived on scene and had command. Truck 22 arrived just behind Engine and Brush 19, accessing the property by cutting through an adjoining field, and the crew went to the rear of the structure and pulled out the owner of the property from the back bedroom. His wife had exited the structure and ran to the neighbors to report the fire. Unfortunately, the person was deceased. Crews from the Truck used available tank water from Engines 19 and 29-1 until the water ran out. Engine 22 arrived and set up a relay to Engine 29-1 laying out 700 feet of 5 inch supply hose to connect to the 1000 feet laid out by Engine 29-1, and then drafted from a porta tank set up on Powells Valley Road and supplied by tankers 216, 21, and 29. Access to the structure from Powells Valley Road was very difficult because of a narrow lane back to the structure. Crews from 29, 22, 19, 21 and 216 worked the interior of the structure once a water supply was established. Chief 21 established a manpower pool in front of Rescue 21. Perry Tanker 9 was relocated to Station 216, and Company 37 relocated to Station 29, with a crew from 37 eventually called into the scene for overhaul. After control was marked by command, and during the overhaul stage, 2 pet dogs were found deceased. Crews continued to extinguish hot spots and perform overhaul while assisting the fire marshal. Temperatures were in the teens with a breeze and snow flurries throughout the incident. Crews assisted with the breakdown of the 1700 feet of 5 inch supply line, and were released by command and went available.
