By Public Information Officer Bill Rehkopf
September 28, 2023

Approximately 20 Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department Volunteers responded along with Carroll County Department of Fire & EMS crews and mutual aid units to a large outbuilding fire in the 7300 block of Gaither Road, Thursday evening, 9/28/23.

The resident of the home discovered the fire burning and quickly called 911. Sykesville and mutual aid crews were dispatched at 8:39 p.m. Within a minute, Engines 123 & 124 and Tower 12 were on the road with full crews, along with both medic units.

Upon arrival, Chief 12-1 (Dennis) reported a 25' x 25' outbuilding fully involved. Arriving crews pulled attack lines and proceeded to attack the fire. The flames were knocked down in about 10 minutes, and the fire was declared under control a short time later.

There were no injuries, and the Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal is conducting the investigation into the cause of the fire.

The incident is another example of how the Sykesville-Freedom District Fire Department relies on its volunteers to carry out its mission of protecting the community.
