Flour Bluff's ESD #2 as well as fire trucks from the Naval Air Station, arrived on the scene to help extinguish the flames.

"That's just kind of how we respond out here. We have we work in tandem with ESD, as well as the Navy. So we use some mutual aid out here, so that's why you see all the units," Belyeu told KRIS 6.
