Just before 2 am the Pioneers along with mutual aid departments were alerted for a apartment building fire on Cloister Ave in the borough. Responding units were advised of multiple calls reporting a smoke condition in the hallways. Deputy 16 arrived finding a working fire on the 2nd floor and the working fire dispatch was requested. The crew from Engine 15-1 made a quick knock on the fire with the crew from Rescue 16 and Truck 15 searching the 12 apartments on the floor. Crews from several departments worked for 2 hours checking for hot spots and ventilating the structure.
