Friday, October 30, 2015
On 15 May 2010 at 1615 hours, the Ocean City Fire Department responded to the Purnell Center, a professional complex containing five businesses, in the 11000 Block of Ocean Gateway. Captain Josh Bunting arrived on location, and confirmed smoke and fire showing from sides Alpha and Charlie. He requested the third alarm assignment, bringing in mutual aid engines for RIT and additional tankers. Chief Duke arrived and assumed command. With fire conditions increasing, command requested additional tankers. Several 2 ½ inch hand lines were advanced and, as conditions worsened, command evacuated crews from the structure. Ladder truck and water supply operations were established, and an aggressive attack contained the fire. One firefighter sustained minor injuries. The operation concluded at 2036 hours, and is being investigated by the Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office.
