Cumberland, RI - Stations 1, 2, 4, 5 and Rescue 2 were stilled out to 806 High Street in the area of Baldwin Street for a reported dwelling fire around 1600hrs on March 02, 2009. Station 1 units arrived to find heavy smoke showing from a 1.5sty wood frame dwelling that appeared to be occupied. Heavy fire conditions were found on side 3 extending upwards to the soffit. Firefighters pulled a 2.5" big line from Truck 1 through the side yard to start fire attack. Engine 22 arrived second due and secured a LDH feeder into the scene. As companies were knocking the bulk of heavy fire down, the OIC received reports of a possible trapped occupant. Truck 1 then dropped their big line and started an aggressive interior search. Third due Engine 41 stretched a 1.75" attack line off of Truck 1 into the second floor to check for extension. Interior crews did find extension on the second floor and also into the addition off of side 3. Truck 5 set their stick up to the roof on side 2 for vent work. Lincoln Engine 4 and Ladder 51 responded in on mutual aid. Engine 4 assisted in primary and secondary searches and then overhaul operations. Ladder 51 set up on side 1 as the F.A.S.T. company. Cumberland Rescue 1 and 2 had the EMS rehab sector established. The fire was under control in roughly an hours time. The fire is under investigation by the Cumberland Fire and Police Departments along with the RI Fire Marshal's Office. No injuries were reported and a family dog was safely rescued from the dwelling.
