House Fire 2614 Redwood Ave

On September 11, 2014 RFD companies were dispatched for the house fire located at 2614 Redwood Ave…  Engine 11 arrived on scene, establishing command, and found a 1.5 story private dwelling with smoke showing from the “C & D” corner.  They conducted an aggressive attack, stretching a 1 ¾ attack line through the front door and encountered fire rolling out of the kitchen into the dining room.  Engine 11 darkened the fire down and moved into the kitchen extinguishing the remaining fire.  They also extinguished hot spots as Truck 1 opened up.  Truck 1 completed a primary search, which proved negative, as Engine 1 stretched a back-up line and Engine 15 established the role of RIT.  The fire was quickly brought under control as a result of a total team effort.  Fire Investigators were requested to the scene to determine a cause.  There were no casualties or injuries as Red Cross was requested and assisted the sole occupant.
