At 1825 hours the company, along with numerous surrounding companies, was alerted to the 39500 Block of Mason Drive in Golden Beach for a reported house fire.

Engine 23, Engine 224, Rescue Squad 2, Tanker 24, and Tanker 2 responded with 22 volunteers.

Engine 224(driver only from Station 22) arrived first and laid a supply line from Golden Beach Road, deployed an attack line, and confirmed a working structure fire.

Engine 23 and Rescue Squad 2 arrived just behind 224 and the crews went to work extinguishing fire, opening up, performing searches, securing utilities, and ventilation.

Engine 1002 arrived and deployed a back up line to back up Engine 23 on Division 2.

The assignment was quickly scaled back to Companies 2 and 1002 for overhaul. Chief 2B held the Golden Beach Command.

And a thank you to Seventh District Volunteer Fire Department Tanker 51 for providing a fill-in while units operated.
