On a muggy Monday afternoon (7/7/14) Company 45 was dispatched for a mulch(outside) fire in the 6 box.  Lt-1, and Chief 45 went in route at the same time.   With the location being a Multi Family Residential unit, Chief 2 opted to roll the Engine 1st instead of the Attack.  Upon arrival of the Chief and Lt. it was upgraded to a Structure Fire box.The bush fire extended to side “D” of the structure, working its way up to almost the loft area.  Engine 45 arrived, picked up its own water supply and went to work.  initial crews did a quick knock down.  Additional arriving crews checked apartments for extension.  Crews were on the scene approx. 1.5 hrs,  Red Cross assisted those who were displaced.x
