Posted: December 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

12/17/12- At 2140, the general alarm was dispatched for smoke on the roof of J&S pizza in the Heights Plaza. PD arrived on scene and stated smoke and fire showing, coming from the roof.  167 Engine arrived first on scene and 167 chief took command with a working fire coming from the roof. 167 rescue, 168, and 169 arrived and assisted with the fire attack. At this time, command requested a 2nd alarm bringing 112,280 truck, and 281 RIT.  With a common roof the length of the building as well as no fire stops the fire at this point grew intensely and command then requested a 3rd and 4th alarm. The fire would end up at 5+ alarms with heavy damage to the facade of the building.  With the quick work of the first arriving company’s  and any incoming units, the fire was contained to the facade with very little to no damage to the businesses. Thanks to all involved on a good fire attack, clean up and working together as well as everyone did. Citizens Hose responded with 28 personnel along with the 250+ other fire and ems personnel.
