While covering Mattydale for their annual installation banquet, North Syracuse FD was dispatched for a residential fire on South Bay RD. Engine 2 (Capt. Santocki) and Car 4(D/C Warren) took the assignment and responded in place of Mattydale. NSFD Car 1 arrived with fire showing from the alpha side and transmitted the working fire, and dispatched Truck 2 (LT J Santoro) to NSFD Station 1 as a move up company. Engine 2 arrived and took the first due engine responsibility, securing a water supply and stretching the initial attack line. NSFD Engine 8 arrived and deployed the back up line, and together made a push quickly knocking down the fire. The engine crew assisted with some overhaul and making sure all fire was extinguished. The engine and crew was release just after 2300 hours.

Units: Car 4, Engine 2, Truck 2
