Inside Investigation

A call to Olive Garden sent "B" Shift out the door at 8:00 p.m. to investigate an odor of something burning inside. Crews arrived and completed an extensive search of what the staff stated was an odor of rubber burning in the storage area. Engine 1-1's crew checked the interior as Tower 1's crew checked the HVAC units on the roof. In the end, nothing was found, and units cleared in around 45 minutes.
