Fire on North 9th Street
Fri. Jul 17th 2020

1017 Hours / 352 North 9th Street / Box 0102 / B platoon

Companies were dispatched for a reported kitchen fire in the second floor apartment. E1 arrived on scene to find a 2.5 story multiple occupancy with smoke and fire showing from the 2nd floor rear window. C5 arrived on scene and established command. Crews quickly stretched a line to the interior and put water on the fire. C1 later arrived on the scene and assumed command while C5 went interior. The fire had extended into a cockloft above the second floor where there was no access. After extensive work to open up the void space crews were able to fully extinguish the fire. Roof crews had a difficult time opening and overhauling the roof area due to a rain roof being put on top of several roofing layers. All primary and secondary searches were negative. Car 1(Stoudt) placed the fire under control at 1059 hours. OFM was called to investigate.
