At 3:52 PM, just an hour after clearing a working fire in Bladensburg, Engine 281 (3rd due) and Truck 28 (1st due) were alerted for the house fire in the 6200 blk of 57th Avenue. Engine 13 arrived on scene to find a 2 story dwelling with smoke showing. Company 28 arrived shortly after and went to work. The engine crew of 5 men arrived on scene and took their own plug in front of the home. The lineman stretched a 200ft attack line and got in place via side charlie to make an attack on the fire while the truck crew of 5 men laddered the home and opened up for the engine companies. The fire was quickly knocked and the assignment was scaled back. Company 28 remained on scene for another 30 minutes to assist with overhaul.
