 While sitting a the CVS parking lot I noticed smoke though the tree line down the road, We head in that direction, As we turned the corner Detroit dispatched engine 46 for a pole fire. We noticed fire showing from the 2nd floor of a dwelling. The neighbors were Calling 911, Paul told them to make sure they know it was a house fire not a pole on fire. The response was delayed do to local company on a 30 min rehab from a earlier fire. Just as engine 46 arrived, the fire pushed out the C side window and started the exposure dwelling on fire. For the first 10mins 4 firefighters controlled two fire at the sometime. The rest of the assignment arrived and helped with overhaul.
