FD responded to a report of an occupied residential structure. En route, FD was advised that the occupants were out of the building. Upon arrival, FD found a two-story, wood frame residential structure. Heavy smoke was coming from the eaves and the attic space, and fire was visible through an open entry door on the first floor. FD completed a 360 survey of the structure and removed sections of fence to gain access to the rear door. FD stretched a line through the open entry door and extinguished the visible fire on the first floor. A second hose line was put into operation on the B side of the structure to protect an exposure and extinguish visible fire. Interior crews gained access to the second floor to find heavy smoke and heat, but had difficulty accessing the fire. The second story was laddered with ground ladders for safety. FD requested the aerial truck to come to the scene to access the second floor and attic space. Two mutual aid FD were requested for manpower and apparatus. FD initially secured a fire hydrant for a water supply, then a tanker shuttle was utilized to provide water due to a water supply issue within the city. A drafting site was established to fill tankers. FD requested utility providers to the scene to secure their respective utility. The aerial ladder was used to extinguish the fire in the attic space. With the main body of the fire extinguished, interior crews performed overhaul to expose and extinguish the remaining fire. No injuries were reported. Two dogs were removed from the structure and turned over to the pet owners for care. The structure and contents sustained heavy damage. The cause of the fire is unknown.
