On Thursday 12/14/2017 just after noon, Station 23 along with surrounding companies were dispatched to the 100 block of Denn Place in the Pleasant Hills section of our district for a reported house on fire. Engine 23 quickly responded with a crew of 6 under the command of Fire Chief Dierolf. Engine 23 arrived to find a two story duplex with "smoke showing". The crew of Engine 23 quickly deployed a 1 3/4" handline and extinguished a room on fire on the first floor. Units from 14, 17, 16, 21 and 12 arrived and assisted with searches and checking for fire extension. No extension was found and the alarm was quickly scaled back. Engine 23 operated for around 1.5 hours before clearing the scene, turning it over to the State Fire Marshal's Office for investigation. Fire Chief Dierolf had the "Newport Command".
