"When Fire Associates arrived, just before midnight, there was no smoke or flames. Great stop on a multi-story apt complex building. The building was located at the far end of the complex but the rigs could drive down a wide parking lot direct to the fire. Laid in a 5-in. from a hydrant in front. "
