A call in to the 911 center from Chief 17 reporting a building on fire at 1153 Swamp Fox Road sent Engine 1-1 out the door. Engine 1-1's crew arrived and was assigned to assist with fire attack. Crews opened up the building as well as assisted with suppression efforts. While the Engine crew was busy with these assignments, D/O Knepper established a fill site at New Franklin's Fire Station. Company 1 units remained on scene for over four hours.
