At 0451 hours on November 16th, Box 512 was struck alerting the Company for a building fire at 1000 W Aaron Dr Building F. As Chief 500 responded, Centre County advised police were on scene reporting substantial smoke coming from the building. The night shift responded in Engine 510 and arrived on scene with their own hydrant to find a 2 story garden apartment with smoke showing from the first floor entrance. A leader line with an 1 3/4″ was quickly deployed and the crew extinguished the fire, containing it to a storage closet in the common area of the first floor. Truck 517 and Engine 514 arrived and began ventilation as well as primary searches of the apartments. All searches were negative. Crews began to pick up and the box was placed available a short time later.
