At 20:59 Engine 732 officered by Deputy McCabe & a crew of (6) were responding and advised by Fire Police Captain Redington who was on scene that they had a working alarm. Engine 732 arrived at 21:01 to find a single story rancher with heavy fire venting from sides 1 & 3, with Deputy McCabe establishing IC. IC assigned the crew of Engine 732 to deploy (2) two 1 3/4" lines, crew (1) one was assigned to side 1 & crew (2) two to side 3 of the structure. After verifying from the home owner that all occupant were out of the residence, next in Engine 831 was assigned to ventilation and to check for extension.
