U58 and Engine 58 arrived on scene and confirmed an active fire and added a tanker task force. Asst 57 (J.Sink) assumed command and requested a full box assignment. A 2nd alarm was struck to help with manpower due to the excessive heat and humidity.

Multiple companies assisted with ventilation before clearing the call.
