Fire Alarm with Smoke in the Structure

At 1515, Sussex EOC contacted the Duty Crew on the "ring down" line to advise them of a fire alarm sounding on Union Street Extended. Engine-Tanker 85-2, and Duty Officer 85-8 made the response. Engine-Tanker 2 arrived first to find a single story home with a basement with nothing showing. As the officer completed his 360, the nozzle firefighter made entry to the front door and encountered a smoke condition in the home. Crews quickly determined the smoke was due to burnt food on the stove, and was quickly able to determine there was no extension and no need for the upgrade. Crews remained on scene for 30 minutes ventilating the structure. Deputy 85 had Command.
