2nd Alarm Fire for Truck 29
04/06/23 – Just after 23:00 hours, a box alarm was dispatched to the 3300 BLK of Huntley Square Dr. in Co. 21’s area for a report of a man trying to set his apartment on fire, bringing Truck 29 as the search company. En route, communications advised they were receiving 5+ calls and the Working Fire Dispatch was started. Engine 21 and Truck 32 arrived to find a garden style apartment building with fire showing from multiple floors. Due to the fire load and building type, a second alarm was immediately started. The crew from Truck 29 completed primary searches throughout the building, which were negative. Later in the incident, the crew was reassigned to the exposure building to check for fire extension. Two firefighters received minor injuries on scene and were released from the hospital shortly after. Crews remained on scene until the morning hours before returning to service.
