Shortly after 6:30pm on Dec 25, 09, multiple calls came into the fire alarm office reporting a structure fire at Gaulin Ave and Elm St. Heavy smoke with visible fire inside this vacant 4 sty dwelling eventually took full possession of the upper floors, burning through the roof while a vacant 4 decker was sitting only feet away.
Facing heavy fire conditions, firefighters were forced out of the building and went to an exterior attack, concentrating on the severely threatened exposure.
