Just after 0900hrs, units were alerted to the 1200BLK of Palmer Road (Co. 21's First Due) for he report of an apartment fire, bringing T829 to the scene (second due special). E821B and BC885 AOS to find a three-story garden-style apartment with fire showing from the top floor. Because the original caller had advised she was still in her apartment when she called, a focused search and aggressive fire attack by the initial companies ensued. Both primary and secondary searches by the special services came up negative, and the agressive attack by the first arriving engine companies held the fire to the third floor apartment. T829 returned to service about two hours later.
