Smoke Inside

Company 1 units and mutual aid were sent to the 400 block of 5th Ave for smoke inside an industrial building. Engine 1-1 arrived on scene and met with facility staff to begin their investigation. Crews located a small fire that was traveling up the inside of the rear wall of the building. Crews operated for over 2 hours extinguishing the fire and an extensive overhaul to ensure it did not spread any further.
