BUSY DAY FOR THE TRUCK ENDING WITH 46 TOWNHOUSE

While members were just finishing up lunch and preparing to start working on the several ongoing station projects, the house bells rang alerting Truck 37 as the 2nd due truck company to the 3400 block of Little Hill Lane in Morningside for a house fire. Initial units on the scene reported smoke showing from the top floor. Upon further investigation, units on the scene found a small fire in a bedroom on the 2nd floor. The fire was quickly extinguished and the truck companies opened up for the engine company. Truck 37 was placed in service a short time later.
While returning the Truck was alerted to transfer to Co. 32’s area while units were operating on a working house fire. Moments after turning the truck around to head south, command requested the fire task force, adding Truck 837 to the assignment. Due to the trucks location at the time of the assignment and having other units closer to the area the truck was placed back on the transfer to Co. 32. While on the transfer the truck responded on several other calls before returning home for dinner time.
While members were cleaning up from dinner and finishing station details, the truck was alerted 1st due to the 300 blk of Harry S. Truman Drive for a reported townhouse on fire. While responding PSC advised there was several calls advising a possible basement fire. Upon arrival of both PE846 and Truck 37, units had smoke showing from the rear basement door and front door. While the Engine from 46 was stretching the line, Truck 37 forced entry, as well as deployed all the ladders on the truck, and began ventilation. Interior crews located a fire in the laundry room which was quickly extinguished. Units spent about an hour on the scene before returning to service.
