Sunday, April 28, 2013 21:30
UVFR Station 135 along with stations 306, 213, and RIT 230 were dispatched to the 300 block of Grant Street in Wall Borough for the report of a dwelling fire.

First arriving crews found a large 3 story structure with fire showing from the back of the building.

Crews made an aggressive attack, however because of the size of the building and lower water pressures, a second alarm including a tanker task force was alerted.

The fire was brought under control in approximately 90 minutes. The cause is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshall Office.
