Communications advised Chief 1 of the caller stating a possible basement fire. Transfer crews and Tower 1 arrived finding smoke coming from a vent. Crews investigated and determined an electrical issue within the ductwork of the residence. Command 1 (Chief Ulrich) returned units quickly after the electric was secured to the residence.
