Two Alarm Fire in Suburban Boca Raton

Capt A. Borroto
Palm Beach County, Florida
March 4th , 2013

On Wednesday February 20, 2013 at 4:30pm units were called to the 17000 block of Brookwood drive in suburban Boca Raton. Initial 911 calls stated that there was a fire inside a three car garage at the location. Responding crews stated that they could see heavy flames and smoke showing from the front of a two story residence when they turned onto the street. On arrival they stated they had a three car garage that was fully involved and they called a working fire. Crews made an aggressive fire attack and found they had two vehicles inside the garage with fire into the attic space. At one point during firefighting efforts a vehicle fuel tank began leaking gasoline which ignited. Firefighters did an excellent job containing the fire to the garage area and preventing the spread of fire into the estimated 6000 square foot home.
Crews on this incident included: E54, E53, P57, E52, E42, E55, R54, R55, R451, R53, R411, DC5, CP5, DC4, BC5, CP4, IV4, TRAIN6, AT18, PI1
