March 10, 2012 - The worst fire with the loss of life in the history of the Lego Twp occurred this morning at 02:47.  Numerous calls to the Lego Twp Fire Alarm Office were received reporting a house fire with people trapped.  Box 3745 was transmitted, dispatching Engines 8, 7 and 3, Ladder 4, Tower Ladder 5, Rescue 3, Battalion 3 and Deputy 1.  Battalion 3 arrived on scene in a few minutes and reported heavy fire showing from the 1st floor on the alpha and bravo sides with a victim on the roof.  A neighbor brought a ladder to try to reach the victim, but was too short to reach him.  Ladder 4 arrived and immediately put up the stick to rescue the victim.  Engine 8  pulled an attack line and began fire suppression on the A/B corner.  The Captain of Engine 8 located a victim who apparently jumped to safety, in some high grass.  The victim was DOA with a broken neck and was impaled by a thick tree branch.   A victim emerged from the first floor on fire and fell at the feet of Battalion 3.  Just as she fell at the Chief's feet, Engine 7 arrived with a line and  quickly extinguished the victim before splitting the crew to attack the fire and attend to the victim.  While this was going on, the victim rescued from the roof advised of more people in the structure.  By this time, fire began to engulf the second floor.  With the heavy fire conditions still present on the first floor, a Second Alarm was transmitted and master stream operation was put into place to knock down the bulk of the fire.  An offensive attack began soon after the utilities were secured, along with a primary search.  The primary search resulted in finding a victim on the first floor kitchen burned beyond recognition and an elderly person with two young children on the 2nd floor near a window, burned over 50% of their bodies.  The fire was placed under control at 04:49 hours.  The cause was determined to be accidental in nature.
