On Tuesday Morning Golden's Bridge Fire Department was dispatched to a residence on Waccabac Rd for reported Smoke in the Structure. Right away all 3 chiefs and the captain were responding. Engine 138, Engine 140, and Tanker 1 were on the road a few minutes behind them. Car 2141 was first on scene and reported heavy smoke in the basement and requested a retone for Golden's Bridge Fire. Car 2141 established Waccabac Rd Command & Car 2143 assumed operations. Engine 138's crew went right to work upon arrival checking with the Thermal Imager for additional fire and venting the smoke from the residence. Engine 140 & Tanker 1 stood by at the bottom of the driveway in case additional resources were needed. Golden's Bridge Units were back in service in about an hour.

 
Units: GBFD - Car 2141, Car 2142, Car 2143, Car 2144, Engine 138, Engine 140, Tanker 1.
