Today around 16:40 DC911 dispatched company 39, Company 36 and mutual aid companies to a reported trailer on fire. Soon after it was upgraded to entrapment with a reported 3 people still inside. The fire was mostly put out before arrival of the units and the 3 people were able to get out. Some minor overhaul was done before returning available.

While units were enroute, a neighbor called and said she could see smoke in the house and windows were beginning to pop out. The Box was immediately up graded to a working structure fire assignment.
