At 1710 hours on March 7th, MFD was dispatched under mutual aid to the Walden Fire District for a 1st alarm response to a reported structure fire. Within moments, Walden command arrived on scene and upgraded the assignment to a full 2nd alarm for heavy smoke pushing from a 2 1/2 story residential apartment house. Car 1 (Pressler) and Truck 221 were again on the road to Walden to assist in suppression efforts. MFD’s truck crew arrived on scene and laddered the building while performing initial searches for occupants and assisted Walden in venting and opening up to extinguish the fire.
