This morning, shortly before 11:00hrs, Baldwinsville and surrounding departments were alerted for a reported house fire with a person possibly trapped in the village of Baldwinsville. Liverpool Engine 5 was on the initial 1st alarm assignment as the RIT (Rapid Intervention Team) to respond directly to the scene. Upon arrival of the first Baldwinsville Command then advised that the occupant was out and had smoke showing from the 2nd floor and roof. Engine 5 (Capt. Ambrose) went enroute shortly after. Engine 5 arrived as the second due engine and was reassigned from RIT to the roof for ventilation. Crews operated on scene for about 30 minutes before the fire was brought under control. Liverpool operated on the scene for about an hour before clearing and heading back to Liverpool.

Upon returning to the district, Engine 5 was quickly sent to a reported structure fire within Station 2's first due. Upon arrival it was deemed that it was an honest mistake and just steam from the roof. Command (Capt. Ambrose) held with Liverpool units only and returned to service shortly.
