At 1800 hours, Station 37 was requested by Chief 46 to stand by in quarters with Engine 37-2 and Tower 37 while units began to operate at a basement fire. Montgomery command arrived to a 2.5 story wood frame, large private dwelling with heavy smoke from the front door, majority of the 1st division and heavy fire in the B/C corner. Command requested the 2nd alarm box be filled on 45-14 which brought the Engine and Tower to the scene. Engine 37-2 and Tower Ladder 37 both marked up with full staff each along with Car 37. Crews arrived and established the manpower pool with Chief 37 taking the assignment and Ex-Chief Wiecenski filling the accountability officer role. Engine 37-2's crew assigned to assist with hoseline operations on the C side and attempt to access the basement. Due to very early failure of the first floor, all interior operations were withheld by command and defensive operations were initiated. Crews spent the majority of the scene with exterior handlines and an aerial master stream hitting fire and high heat areas throughout the first and second floors. Tower 37 crews also assisted with exterior hoseline operations on the A side mainly focusing on ground ladders into division 2. 37 crews cleared the scene and became available at approximately 2330 hours.
