Tuesday Night at approximately 19:01 hrs Taskforce 84 was dispatched to the Huntington Mews Apartments off of Broadacres Drive for a reported multi-residential fire. 8401 (Chief Cipriano) arrived with smoke showing and requested the Working Fire Dispatch. Ladder 84 arrived as the First Due Truck and forced the front door, made entry, and searched the apartment. Engine 88 arrived, laid a supply line, and stretched an 1 3/4" handline. The bulk of the fire was knocked with a PW Can from Ladder 84. The fire was held to the kitchen of the one apartment. Crews completed overhaul and went available a short time later. No injuries were reported, this fire is under investigation by the local Fire Marshal.
This is the fourth fire for Blackwood in the last 7 days. Keep up the good work men.
