CFD was alerted to 165 North Fourth Street just after midnight for a reported house fire with children trapped. Engine 1-2 and Tower 1 arrived shortly after dispatch to find a fire on the exterior of the building and new reports of everyone out of the home. Searches quickly proved this. After some minor overhaul, the fire was contained to the outside wall of the duplex. Crews remained on scene until 1:30 am.
