Units arrived to find a single family home with heavy structural damage well involved in fire. Taunton Ladder 5 arrived first and stretched an attack line to the front of the structure. Solvay Engine 12 arrived second due and stretched another line to the front of the structure to knock down the bulk of the fire. Solvay Engine 12 then moved to the back of the dwelling as Fairmount arrived and began to assist with suppression in the front of the house.
Solvay Engine 21 was added to the assignment once the alarm was upgraded to a Signal 99 (working fire). Engine 21 arrived and operated as the RIT team while all units operated on the scene.
