Newark Fire 1 Unit on the job. South 3rd
Firefighter Tim Cooperrider cleans out a window.
Newark Fire Department was dispatched to a possible structure fire in an apartment. The caller reported a smell of smoke that she thought was coming from one of the adjacent apartments. Upon arrival Captain David Decker reported nothing showing. While performing a 360 on the structure he quickly realized that one of the apartments was charged with smoke and requested all units to continue on a priority 1 and then upgraded the response to a working fire.
