Vehicle Fire

Shortly after clearing a fire alarm on Gateway Dr, CFD units were sent to the intersection of Fourth St and Washington St for a vehicle fire. Being a block away, Tower 1 added themselves to the call and arrived during dispatch to find one vehicle at the intersection with fire in the engine compartment. Engine 1-2 arrived next and the crew from Tower 1 advanced a crosslay to begin fire attack. Crews from Ambulance 1-7 and Engine 1-1 assisted. Crews remained on scene for a short time assisting CPD with the investigation.
