District 4, Chief Collini, arrived on scene and reported a fire in the walls of a 2-story wood frame. All occupants are out of the house. Engine 18's hydrant was either frozen or o.o.s. so Engine 23 was called to bring a second source of water. Engine 46 brought water northbound on Airport Road and Engine 23 brought water southbound Airport Road across the railroad tracks.

Vent or not? In this case a quick stop was made and the roof didn't need to be opened.

Good job done by all quick stop made and good job getting second and third water supplies established in a hurry.
Limitted damage to the structure and most importantly no injures to the residents or firefighers!
