The last box of the weekend was dispatched just before daylight today for a silo fire in the area of 602 Fifth Avenue. Company 1 arrived to find a small fire that was contained to one of the grain bins in a section of a silo that is in the process of being demolished. Duty 1 arrived on scene and assumed command. Truck 1 utilized the master stream to extinguish and wash out the remaining grain in that area. Fire was extinguished and no overhaul required. Command 1 terminated, and all units returned to service.
