Early this afternoon Company 91 and mutual aid were dispatched to the La Quinta Inn on Eisenhower Blvd for reports of a fire in a room. Units arrived with nothing showing. Tower 91 arrived as the first due Truck and positioned side Alpha and split. Upon investigating, crews located a fire in the ceiling of a room. The fire was knocked with a PW and extensive overhaul was done to ensure there was no extension.
Later in the evening Company 91 and mutual aid were dispatched to the Rutherford area on Mifflin Avenue for a deck fire. Chief 91-3 arrived and found a small area of smoldering fire. Engine 91-5 arrived as the 1st due engine with its own hydrant on the corner. Truck 91 arrived as the 1st due special service. 1st arriving crews pulled a crosslay to soak the area down and checked for any extension to the house. The box was quickly reduced after confirming the fire was contained to the small area.
