Taftville 3 Alarms, 11-20-10

Around 16:30, Taftville Fire Responded to 9-11 South "C" street for a building fire with numerous calls. Once the first officer arrived bystanders stated a occupant maybe in the 2nd floor apartment. M/A aid was requested, from Occum, Yantic and Mohegan Tribel for FAST. Crews searched the apartment and found it to be clear of the occupant. Crews stretched several lines and vented the building, The heavy fire was knocked down on the exterior of the building and several crews worked the three apartments. With the layout of the building the fire was a little stubborn but was under control in about and hour. Several units were requested for man-power do to the extensive overhaul. Lisbon and Baltic aided with the incident
