On Tuesday the 17th, Box alarm 7-15 was sounded for the possible house fire at 8606 Valley Court. The assignment called for Engine Companies 7, 8, WC 6, 12, A-79, RE-74 (RS), WC TK-6, Tower 1, and Tankers from 7, WC 6 and 21.
As units marked up, ECC came back with information confirming a fire in home. Chief 20 (Lakin) was in the area and arrived first reporting a two story single family with smoke showing. E-72 arrived soon after, laid out from the end of the driveway and advanced a 200' crosslay to the second floor. A RIT assignment was alerted to assist.
E-82 arrived and had the back up line from 72. The fire was knocked quickly and held to a bathroom on the second floor with minimal extension into the attic. Command soon scaled back the assignment to units on the scene.
