Oct 19 — 941 W Oak St
Received station tone reporting a small fire in the yard, requesting assistance with extinguishment. FD noted a moderate black smoke column and reduced visibility from smoke crossing the roadway prior to arrival. FD found a vehicle fully involved and attached to a tow truck at the time of arrival. Initially, FD was unable to determine if multiple vehicles were involved or not. FD investigation determined only a single vehicle in the storage yard was involved in the incident and unintentionally resulted from being prepped for demolition when the fire occurred.
