First arriving company, Engine 4, found a fire in an advanced stage of development and reports of possible persons still inside and exposures on B and D sides with electrical cable hazards. Engine 40 provided the large diameter water supply to Engine 4 while Truck 2 came in and readied an elevated stream. Engine 4 ultimately deployed two 1-3/4" and two 2-1/2" attack lines and also a large-diameter supply line to Truck 2. Engine 30 deployed another attack line from the parallel street to the North (Devonshire Way). Subsequently, it was learned that the four occupants of the house were out of the country on vacation.
