On Saturday February 3, 2018 at 10:48am Stations 41/43, Engine 76, Engine 38, Engine 37 and RIT 31 were dispatched to 420 Walnut St for the reported garage fire.
Ladder 41-1 was first on scene with fire showing from the rear of the garage. Engine 43-1 arrived and secured their own hydrant and 2 handlines were stretched to the rear of the garages.

Engine 37-1 arrived, and its crew assisted city units. Crews were able to place a quick knock on the fire as it appeared to have only been on the outside of the garage and did not make its way inside.

Fire Marshals were called to the scene and crews were on scene for a little over an hour.
