Boat House and Wood Fire in Calvert

At approximately 6:35 am on Friday, April 10,  the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad had a report of a boat-house fire on Riverview Court in Dunkirk.

Units from Dunkirk, North Beach, Huntingtown VFD and Anne Arundel County responded to the call.
Once Dunkirk VFD arrived on scene and reported a working fire, they requested Boat 83 to assist from water level.  They had a 20-foot x 20-foot building used to store supplies and possibly as a sitting area to look out on the river.  This building was about 40 feet or more down the embankment and was fully involved with fire.  The surrounding area was also burning from the steps to the boat dock, tree and brushes.
After Dunkirk had fire mostly under control and was still putting water on the upper portion of the embankment and building, they awaited the arrival of Boat 83 to water down the lower portion of the fire from their advantage.
Chief 5 held company 5 (Dunkirk), Tanker 6 (Huntingtown) and Boat 83.  All other units went in service.
The state fire marshal had been called to do investigation of this fire.
