Heavy Fire from Second Floor on Harlequin Terrace
February 23, 2005
At 2246 hours, Engine 151, Truck 15 and Rescue Squad 15 were dispatched for a report of fire on the second floor of a townhouse. Truck 15 arrived on the scene with a two story end of the row townhouse with heavy fire showing from the second floor. Engine 151 advanced the initial attack line while the Truck laddered the building and opened up. Engine 121 (Hillandale) backed up Engine 151 while Engine 412 (Calverton) covered the Delta exposure. Units subsequently found fire on the first and second floor of this occupancy. The fire was knocked down quickly on both floors, primary and secondary searches were completed by the rescue squad with negative results and the fire extension was cut off before it reached the attached exposure.
