Fire units were dispatched to smoke in the basement shortly after midnight in a residence on Sterling Avenue. Arriving fire units were greeted with moderate smoke pushing from side A and D from a fire in the basement of a single family class 5 structure. All occupants were reported to be out of the building. Engine 5 took the hydrant in front of the house with Truck 7 setup on side A. Two lines were stretched for suppression with the initial line deployed to the basement. The attack crew located the fire on the C/D side of the basement adjacent to the boiler unit. The fire was quickly knocked down and all searches were negative. DC DelNegro in command.
