Wheeling Firefighters were dispatched to the 1100 Block of National Road, just across the street from Whisk Bakery and next door to Edgwood Lutheran Church in Woodsdale on Friday August 4, 2017 for the structure fire.

Crews made an aggressive interior attack stretching several hand lines into operation in addition to extending the bucket of Ladder 1 to the second story/roof area of the 2 story wood frame house. Companies were successful at quickly knocking down the fire and stopping any extension into the home. Stay tuned to @wheelingfd on Twitter for more from PIO Philip Stahl.

You may have noticed we have changed domains from WheelingFD.com to WheelingsBravest.com. While our domain has changed we will still be heavily involved and supporting the WFD in an unofficial capacity. Our main objective will be to cover the WFD but we also have opened the door to support the Wheeling Police Department as well as other area Fire Departments.

Again, we run this site to show our support and gratitude to the Wheeling’s Bravest – we are not directly associated with either department or any other department listed on this page.
