A box assignment, shortly before 4 p.m., sent Company 1 and surrounding departments to a house fire at 660 South Main Street. Ambulance 1-7 arrived on scene with a two story, single family home with normal conditions from the front. Shortly after arrival, the tenant met the crew of Ambulance 1-7 and informed of a fire on the second floor with a person trapped inside. Fire units arrived and found a small fire in the laundry room on the first floor with no one trapped. Quick extinguishment and overhaul was completed, and units remained on scene for around one hour.
