Burning Odor in Townhome

A busy start to "D" Shift sent both Engines and the Tower to 303 Apple Blossom Way in the Borough for an odor of something burning in the townhome. Engine 1-4 arrived and laid out supply line from the entrance of the complex and arrived on location with normal conditions on a two story, lightweight construction, multi-family apartment complex. Tower 1 and Engine 1-1 arrived, stretched a line to the apartment and investigated. After an extensive search, crews found nothing and Command (Captain 1-4) released all units after around one hour on scene.
