With 9-1-1 receiving multiple calls, police arrive moments later and report an apartment fire on the 2nd floor and are evacuating the building.

The 2nd Engine (2) arrives and the Assistant Chief throws a ladder to the 3rd floor and stretches a booster line and extinguishes the fire from the ground. The interior line wasn’t used.

The fire was extinguished quickly and the two F.A.S.T. companies on the box were returned.
