On February 3rd, 2015, the Alpha Fire Company responded to a building fire at 705 S Atherton St. Truck Lieutenant 597 arrived to confirm a working fire in a service garage and brought the 2nd alarm. Engine 512 and Truck 516 arrived and first due crews deployed multiple hand lines to attack the fire and protect a commercial building exposure to the rear. The garage fire was knocked down and a successful interior attack was made on the rear exposure, saving the building from more significant damage. Crews remained on scene for an extended time for overhaul and clean-up. This was the Company’s 3rd working fire in 24 hours. Again, a big thank you to the mutual aid companies for the assistance, and thank you to Engine 814 and Truck 5716 for covering our area while we were out.
