While responding to the St. Paul Street address. the assignment was filled out with multiple calls reporting a house fire.
Engine 2 went on location with heavy fire out the windows on the third floor and through the roof of a large three-story building.
The deputy chief assumed command in front of the building and requested a second alarm.
Soon after, command ordered all firefighters out of the building and fought the fire defensively.
About a dozen companies responded to the scene.
