The initial report of the fire being in a garage proved to be erroneous. A small house was on the property and the building was totally involved upon the arrival of Engine 50.

A large amount of brush and bushes at the rear of the building made gaining access to that area difficult. Here firefighters from Squad 14 stretch a second line around back.
