Mutual Aid provided to Nelson County Fire

On 11/22/2017 at 2131 hours, the Bardstown Fire Department was dispatched for a mutual aid request to the Nelson County Fire and Rescue Department for a report of a structure fire on Stinson Drive.  Bardstown Fire Department Engine 1 was the first on scene with heavy fire showing at the rear of the structure.  Crews deployed a 2″ attack line and a monitor nozzle and achieved a good knock down of the majority of the fire.  NCFR units arrived on scene and a water shuttle operation was put in place.  Even though the majority of the fire was knocked down, it was difficult to extinguish due to the balloon frame construction and the lack of structural integrity.  Bardstown Fire units were on scene for about three hours.  NCFR remained on scene for several more hours afterwards.
