East Vincent Police along with Chief 62 arrived on the scene with light smoke showing from the roof area, requesting Engine 62-1 deploy a hand-line upon arrival. Assistant 62 arrived and established command. Engine 62-1 and Chief 62 found the seat of the fire in a second floor crawl space quickly extinguishing the fire. Engine 62-5 arrived and assisted with overhaul in the crawl space while Tower 61 checked the roof area for extension and assisted the crew of Engine 62-5 with overhaul.
