Less than 12 hours after a 2nd alarm fire in our own district, the CHFD was requested on a 2nd alarm to the City of Rensselaer for Box 29-02 at 708 East St. CHFD responded with Cars 1, 2 and 3, 8-5, T-8 and R-8. Car 2 (Asst. Chief O'Connor) was the first CHFD officer on scene. He quickly met up with the IC, Asst. Chief Corcoran and received orders for the CHFD units. Engine Co. 8-5 and Truck 8 arrived moments later. 8-5 secured its own water supply and the crew stretched a line to the second floor while the Truck went to work opening up on the second floor as well. The aggressive interior attack by the Rensselaer and Clinton Heights units made quick work of the fire. Exposures were a mere 3 feet away on either side. Neither suffered any damage due to the rapid fire suppression.
