This evening at 735 pm company 39 (grantville) was
dispatched to 123 automatic lane for a reported kitchen fire. Chief 39 went
enroute and was advised the home owner is trying to go back in for their cats
and that there was black smoke coming from the windows. Chief 39 arrived and confirmed a
working fire and immediately had engine 39 drop a line at the end of the road
and have engine 36-1 pick it up. Truck 35 arrived, backing into the drive and
set up for roof operations that were then held. Crews found a working basement
fire with extension to the kitchen and got a quick knock on it. Units were out
for 3 hours.
All cats were found alive.
