Units from Station Two and Seven were initially dispatched to the scene, due to the scene's complexity and that there was a commercial structure nearby, incident command called for a second alarm which dispatched units from Station One and Station Six for additional resources. Firefighters tackled a challenging environment and limited water supplies to shift operations to protect nearby structures. This involved digging a trench to stop the fire from progressing further. With thanks to Gruppe Six, they were able to provide a water tender for the Fire Department to utilize to refill our Engines as they battled the flames. At approximately 23:00 FIRE-3 helicopter was made available for Aerial Firefighting and greatly assisted with the efforts.
