The initial assignment included three fire engines, two ladder trucks, two water tenders, and one battalion chief.  CCFR Engine 26 from the Dollar’s Corner fire station arrived at 3:13 p.m. and reported a small, single-story residential structure, with flames and smoke coming from a bedroom on the backside of the house.  Additional units were dispatched at that time to assist with water supply, due to the lack of hydrants near this location.
