Meredith Companies Assist With 5 Alarm Structure Fire in Campton
November 11, 2015
Meredith companies were alerted at 4:44 for 14 Tanker 5 as part of a second alarm assignment to provide station coverage at Campton Station 1. Campton-Thornton Fire Department companies were responding to a confirmed structure fire at the Armont Inn in Campton, located at 311 Ellsworth Hill Road.

Campton-Thornton crews arrived a short time later and found an approximate 100' x 40' barn well involved. The barn was attached to a larger building that was formerly used as an inn. A third alarm was requested due to the heavy involvement of the building and the distance from the scene to a water source. 14 Tanker 5 diverted to the scene.

A fourth alarm was requested at 5:02 with additional tankers being requested a short time later, making the fire the equivalent of 5 alarms. 14 Engine 2 responded to cover Campton Station 1 as part of the 4th alarm.

When 14 Tanker 5 arrived on scene the truck was placed into the tanker shuttle that had been set up to provide a water supply. The crew from the truck went to the fire building and began assisting with suppression operations, and later, overhaul which took several hours. Meredith companies were placed in service at 10:23 hours.

In all, 30 pieces of apparatus and approximately 60 firefighters responded to the scene.
