Callaway, MD - On Friday, January 5, 2024, at 10:33 a.m., Station 6 (SDVFDRS) and Station 3 (Bay District VFD) and EMS resources were dispatched for a commercial vehicle fire at Take It Easy Campground, located at 45285 Take It Easy Ranch Road in Callaway. At 10:38 the alarm was upgraded to a structure fire bringing the remainder of the structure fire assignment (including Bay District Station 9). The incident involved a 5th wheel camper with initial concerns of a subject possibly trapped inside.
Upon the arrival of Fire Chief 3 (J. Gould) he found the 5th wheel camper ablaze. Fortunately, all occupants were quickly accounted for, ensuring a rapid and coordinated response to the emergency situation.
