Engine and Chief Run First Due House Fire

1/8/15.  Just before 1400hrs, the Box Alarm was sounded for 7103 Fitzpatrick Dr for a report of a house fire. E-101 arrived on scene with smoke showing from side “Alpha”. The crew quickly stretched a line, while the officer made a 360* size up, and found fire showing from the basement and made an attack from side “Charlie” through the basement entrance. The fire was knocked quickly by E-101’s crew, and other companies assisted with overhaul, and searches.  Chief 10A had command, and units operated for about 2 hrs.
