At 1208 hours, Company 2 and surrounding departments were alerted to a house fire across from Chopticon High School. Engine 24 responded first calling out the fill site hydrant at Morganza Turner and Grandview Haven Dr. Enroute the incident location was updated to 25111 Colton Point Rd.
Chief 7A arrived first reporting smoke showing from the Bravo side of a 2 story single family residence. Chief 7A had the Mechanicsville Command.
After extinguishing fire in an interior closet on the first floor, Engine 24's crew moved to the second floor to look for further extension. As other units arrived, a back up line was stretched and all companies worked to complete significant overhaul operations looking for hidden fire.
