December 26, 2009

A first alarm assignment was dispatched on the 24-1 box to 476 East Market Street in Williamstown for a basement fire. Chief 24 on scene reported a working fire. Engines 24, 23, 66, Truck 22, Rescue 23, Tankers 24, 23, and EMS from 24 were called on the initial dispatch. Engine and Tanker 22 were dispatched later on to replace other units. Truck 22 responded with a crew of seven, Engine 22 responded with a crew of six, and Tanker 22 responded with two crew members. On the Truck's arrival at side A, there were crews working the interior of the basement, and the Truck crew was given the assignment of venting the upper floors. The crew went to work performing horizontal ventilation and overhaul. The bulk of the fire was knocked down on company 22's arrival, with smoke throughout both sides of the 2 story duplex structure. Engine 29 (Halifax) was relocated to Station 22. Crews continued to assist with venting and other duties until released by command.

A fire marshal later determined the cause of the fire to be from careless smoking. Two adults and three children were displaced by the fire.
