Engine 116’s and Ladder 39’s crew stretched 400’ of 3” line to the front door and attached an 1 3/4” hose line. Engine 116’s crew made entry into the house and were able to quickly knock down the fire. Ladder 39’s crew began ventilation and searches. Engine 115 laid a supply line from Leslie Ln to the scene with the assistance of Bedford Engine 109 for a total of 1,900’ of 5” hose.
