On July 3, 2019, the Atascocita Fire Department responded to a commercial building fire at Coach’s Sports Bar. First arriving units reported heavy smoke showing. This interview is with incident command staff: Fire Chief Mike Mulligan, Battalion Chief David Roark, and Battalion Chief Brian Mulligan. The interview is supported by a dashcam video.
The episode is dedicated to the memory of Lieutenant Jared Snell, the officer on the first-in company. Tragically, Lt. Snell died in a motor vehicle accident three weeks following this fire.
