Today just after 13:30 hours Box 46-2 was dispatched for a reported house fire. Chief 46 arrived to have a smoke showing and requested the 1st alarm assignment. 46 crews made first entry having heavy fire from the second floor with 2 handlines in service before arrival of mutual aid units. Once mutual aid units arrived addtional lines and ladders were placed into service. Crews worked this incident for about 4 hours before returning. Great job by all crews working this incident.
