Blanco VFD was first on the scene Saturday August 24, when a fire broke out in the garage of Ronnie Immel’s brother’s home on Delaware Creek Road in Kendall County. The call was for Mutual Aid for a garage fire shortly after 12 noon.
When the Blanco VFD arrived, the garage and roof were already fully engulfed in flames. Units from Boerne, Sisterdale, Bulverde/Spring Branch and Johnson City also responded.
The Blanco EMS was there providing “rehab” for the firemen in the air-conditioned ambulance when they rotated out of fire fighting.
The home was completely destroyed, but the actions of these fire departments prevented it from spreading to the dry grass and growing into something much larger. The remains of the home can be seen in the background of the picture below.
Blanco VFD is always looking for volunteers. If you are 17 or older contact the VFD for information about how to become involved.
