Firefighters were able to prevent a blaze from engulfing a Fourth Street apartment building on Saturday morning.
Deputy Chief Neil Myers said the call came in about 10:13 a.m. for a building fire at 48-50 Fourth St. under the front porch.
"[Engine] 6 arrived with Car 2 to find active fire burning along the first floor deck and into the first floor wall area," he reported. "Smoke was exiting from all floors of [the] house including basement and progressively worsening.
All occupants were out of the building, although the Engine 3 crew checked the second floor apartment to be sure while Engine 6 began the fire attack on the first floor with Tower 1. Engine 1 took a handline and Engine 2 was called to standby, and a Lenox engine was dispatched to help cover the city.
