House Fire

As Engine 1-1's crew was working on a building fire, Engine 1-4 and the Tower were alerted just after 5:30 p.m. to 3194 Etter Road for a house fire. Engine 1-4 and Tower 1 arrived as the first engine and ladder truck on scene to find a mulch fire that extended to the exterior of the home. The fire was smoldering upon arrival, a line was stretched, and the area still smoldering was extinguished. Crews remained on scene for around 30 minutes.
