The time was around 2235 hrs and the box was transmitted for a structural fire with an address of 1992 Gatewood Lane. Engines 6, 9, 7, Ladder 2 & 205 respond with a possible elderly female inside. Engine 6 arrives and reports a working fire in a two-story E/O/R. 205 strikes a second alarm as fire rapidly extends vertically and into the common cockloft. Tower Ladder 2 immediately goes to the roof and opens up two vent holes. But the fire already extended 4 houses in from the end.
205 strikes the third alarm while interior crews make quick work in the exposures pulling down ceilings on the second floor and darkening down the fire in the common attic. Searches came up negative and the fire was put under control by 2350 hours. The fire is under investigation.
