Just before 1800 Engine 28 was alerted for the house fire on the 7700 block of Emerson Rd in the West Lanham Hills neighborhood behind the station. Engine 28 arrived to find a 2 story home with smoke showing from the second floor and took their own hydrant. The men of Company 28 forced entry and quickly stretched a line upstairs where they found fire in the attic converted into a bedroom. The fire was knocked and a primary was completed within minutes of arrival. Engine 28 operated on scene for nearly 90 minutes before returning to service.
