All Hands for the rear off on a Muli-Family

     

Sunday, August 2, 2015 1745 Just before the change of tours both companies were alerted first due for the phone alarm reporting the rear of a house on fire at 4112 Carpenter Avenue. Moments later Battalion 15 gave the 10-75 for heavy smoke coming from the corner of that address. On arrival Battalion 15 requested an additional engine and truck while both company officers and L39's inside team started to make their way towards a group of closely grouped houses to find the exact location of the fire. Once the fire's location was found, Engine 63 began to stretch their line up the front stoop to the rear for best access to the fire which had extended outside the first floor and was running the side of the dwelling and into the cockloft. A second line was immediately stretched into the alley of exposure 2 to protect the large multiple dwelling which already had windows beginning to fail. A third handline was also stretched via the interior of the main fire building to the second floor where companies found fire had extended into the cockloft. The situation was quickly mitigated and the fire was brought under control in 46 minutes. Division 7 had the command.
