FASCV Responds to Sunnyvale House Fire

Date: July 24, 1400 Hrs
Type: 1st alarm
Address: 880 Humewick at Mallard, Sunnyvale
Response: Sunnyvale E1, E2, E3, E4, E40, R2, and T2, IC - Lt. Vierra, - Batt. 3 (Capt. Chetcuti)
This fire was at a split-level, single-family dwelling with fire in a detached shed in the rear yard. The fire progressed into a 1st floor bedroom and then into attic via the eaves.
As it happens, the first-due companies (E4 and E40) were out on medical incidents, therefore Station 2 (E2, R2, and T2) were the first units on scene. A quick knockdown of the shed fire and aggressive attack limited damage to the shed, 1 bedroom and the attic above.
FASCV released at 1550 Hrs. 
FASCV Responders: Ron Green, Bob Gundrum (driver FSU 1) and George Hoyt.
