On December 20th company was dispatched for a building fire response in our first due local on Eisenhower Ave. Engine 49-2 with a crew of 5 made the response as well as the tower and 49-9 Chief Burk and 49-9aVolpone. Assisting companies included were 674318 and RIT08. Units arrived to find smoke pushing from the building and quickly got to work. The fire was contained to the dryer area in the basement with some minor extensions to the surrounding walls and was handled with a few extinguishers.An excess build up of lint inside the dryer and around the heating element can cause a fire. It is recommended that the dryer panels be removed and the inside be cleaned out. This goes beyond just cleaning the lint trap after each load. An appliance repairservice company can help you out with this.
