The dispatch came in at 1605 Thursday for a building fire in Valley Township. The call to 911 indicated there was smoke in a building from an unknown source in the 100 block of Airport Road across street of Lincoln Highway.
Arriving first due, Engine 31-1 went interior to investigate the situation. Westwood Battalion Chief Sly assumed Airport Road Command and Deputy Chief Brecht assumed operations.
Once inside firefighters encountered a light haze and odor adjacent to a heating unit at the ceiling of the building. Engine 44-5 established the water supply and Rescue 35 stood by in the manpower pool.
Firefighters ascended to the roof to check the unit's operation. All checks came back normal and the management team was advised to call a technician to repair the problem.
