Long Valley Engine 1-1 was the first due and crews entered the home and found heavy charring and extinguished a small pocket of fire in the ceiling and attic area. Crews checked for extension and later performed salvage and overhaul. Other units on scene were Schooleys Quint 3-9, Fairmount Engine 2-1 and Tender 2-7, and Long Valley Cascade 1-3. All crews left after approximately 2 hours and the fire is under investigation.
