The working fire dispatch brought Engine 1-2 to 6503 Mountain Road, Fayetteville Fire Department's first due, for a house fire. During initial dispatch, responding units were advised that there was possible entrapment at the residence. Chief 7 arrived with a working fire and upgraded the box. Engine 1-2 arrived on scene and was immediately put to work with Assistant Chief 1 being assigned to fire attack supervisor and relieving the initial attack crew leader. Captain Ebersole's crew was assigned to the basement division where they encountered fire that was quickly extinguished. After this assignment was complete, crews opened up and extinguished some hot spots. All searches by the initial attack crew were negative. Quick work by all crews brought the fire under control in around thirty-minutes, and Engine 1-2 remained on scene for approximately three hours.
