Southwest Fire along with Aboite Fire, Poe Fire and Air Guard Fire, were dispatched at 11:00 pm. to a reported structure fire located at 6231 MacBeth Rd. Truck 57 arrived on-scene and reported heavy fire showing and deployed their BlitzFire nozzle.

Fire 51 arrived and assumed command and requested an area tanker response which brought a total of 12 tankers to the scene.

Both District ladder trucks were placed into action once power was cut to the overhead electrical lines. The fire was extinguished before reaching a large attached storage building that contained compressed flammable cylinders.

The structure suffered heavy fire damage to over half the building but there were no reported injuries. The fire originated in the area of a paint booth but the cause is unknown.
