The third building assignment and second working fire of the night came at 2304 when Engine 62-2 was once again dispatched to Station 61’s first due this time it was for a automatic fire alarm at Skyline Manufactured Housing while 61 was currently working a CO alarm elsewhere in their due, Deputy Chief 62 arrived first on the scene and reported a smoke condition on the Bravo side and Countywide Communications quickly upgraded the assignment to a building fire box alarm. In the first mintutes crews had a difficult time finding the fire due to it being a very large building and it being secured, once crews gained access to the building they determined that there was heavy fire coming from a mobile home that was being constructed inside the structure. Crews remained on the scene completing extensive overhaul for a lengthy period of time, once again great job to all involved!
