At 1540 hrs The Union Fire Company No.1 was alerted for an engine to assist the Community Fire Company of Rising Sun (Cecil Station 8) on a reported garage fire on Love Run Road in the Colora section of Cecil County, Maryland. Chief 8 (Blakeley) arrived on the scene with an attached garage fire extending into a 1-story rancher.
