As Truck 6 responded units on scene reported fire showing on side C from 4 units, a task force was called for, followed quickly by a 2nd alarm that was transmitted sending E-62 and Chief 6B to the scene. T-6 arrived as 2nd truck and took up a tough spot with limited access on the Charlie side. Crews began laddering the 2nd and 3rd floors and then went to assist with a search and opening up the ceilings. E-62 arrived and was tasked with going to the 3rd floor to assist with fire attack as well as opening up to check for extension. Crews operating on scene were able to make an aggressive attack and had the fire extinguished within the hour, E-62 was released back to service while T-6 remained to assist with overhaul for about the next hour or so.
