Upon arrival Engine 18 and Ladder 18 reported heavy smoke and fire coming from the second floor of a two-story multi-dwelling. Firefighters found extensive fire on the second floor. An aggressive interior attack was mounted bringing the blaze quickly under control. The fire cause is undetermined. All civilians exited the structure before arrival of C.F.D. units; there were no civilian or firefighter injuries.

There were working smoke alarms on every floor; smoke alarms do save lives!

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Loss to the building and contents is estimated at $40,000.
