Smoke in the Building

HQ station units were sent to the unit block of Gall Way on Wilson College campus for a fire alarm. On arrival, crews found a smoke condition in the building and requested the assignment be upgraded. Crews investigated the building and found an HVAC unit on the roof had malfunctioned due to electrical issues and burned up the control module. Units remained on scene until maintenance arrived and the building was ventilated.
