Truck and Engine 22 dispatched class one on the 24-1 box for a structure fire at 202 West Market Street in Williamstown. Truck 22 responded with 7 and Engine 22 with 4. On arrival the Truck beached on Market Street and sent crew forward who laddered the building. Engine 22 arrived and staged on Market Street and sent their crew forward. The building was a 3 story wood frame 40 by 70 apartment building with heavy smoke pushing from the roof. A roof crew gained access to the roof by laddering the Delta side next door structure and began multiple vent holes while crews from several engine companies advanced an interior attack from side A. After initial knockdown extensive roof work was needed to dig out all remaining pockets of fire hidden in heavy timber. A crew from Rescue 21 went to the roof to assist the 22 roof crew with that task. Outside temperature was near 80 with high humidity despite being the middle of the night. Crews continued with roof ventilation until all pockets of fire were extinguished.
