Wednesday, May 11, 2011
The communications center alerted Station 20, Engine 22, Rescue/Engine 28/32 and Ladder 18 for a residential fire. 20-5 made the response under command of Assistant Chief Maxwell with a crew of 5. 20-5 stretched in from New Castle Ave/South St and arrived to find a 1 story SFD with nothing evident from the exterior. 20-5's crew pulled 1" 3/4 to the front door and forced the door and was met with a heavy smoke condition.

Engine 22 arrived and was assigned to back up 20-5's crew and check for fire extension. Ladder 18 arrived and was assigned to the Roof Division and performed vertical ventialtion as well as throwing ground ladders. Rescue 20 made the response under command of firefighter Wipf with a crew of 4. Rescue 20 arrived and assisted with overhaul operations and filling SCBA's.
