First arriving units found the house to be well involved and called for all Wayne fire companies to be dispatched to the scene. Truck 4 was the second fire apparatus on scene and it’s crew quickly worked on getting the aerial set up and advancing hose into the structure with Company 3. Crews were able to get the fire under control quickly despite it spreading into the attic. Check out pictures of Company 4 firefighters in action!
