Video: Medics Search for Person Trapped in Ohio Fire

Incident command video from Newark trailer fire

David Decker – On November 4, 2019 at 0901 hours, Newark Fire Department was dispatched to 987 Idlewilde Avenue for a report of a structure fire. While responding, the dispatcher reported a person possibly being trapped inside the structure per the caller information. Medic-1 was on the air in the vicinity and quickly arrived on scene reporting a working fire. The crew from Medic-1 donned their turnout gear and using a water-can attempted to make entry into the structure as civilians had indicated that they thought they could hear someone inside.

NFD responded with 2 engines, 2 ladders, 2 medics, and 3 chief officers for total strength of 19, and received assistance from 2 mutual-aid engines. While the fire was being knocked down a search of the structure revealed no civilians were inside. Shortly after that the occupant arrived on scene and confirmed nobody is inside.

The cause of the fire was ruled undetermined.

This video was recorded with a Motorola Z Force Droid cellphone.
