In response to multiple 9-1-1 calls, Firefighters quickly responded to a one-story metal-clad commercial building with heavy smoke and fire showing. Firefighters commenced a fierce interior attack through the smoke filled 100' X 150' structure that was loaded with movie props. This 54 year-old building was doing business as "C.P. Three Prop House" (C.P. is in reference to cinema props). Additional Firefighters were requested as it became difficult to access the seat of the fire, which was located at the north wall of the structure (D-side of the building). Truck companies remained on the triple gable roof, and were able to continually evaluate smoke and ventilators to guide the firefighters inside the structure to the source of the fire.

A total of 91 Firefighters battled the stubborn flames for one hour and 22 minutes before confining the flames entirely within the 22,319 square foot occupancy. Happily no civilian or Firefighter were reported injured during this incident. The dollar loss is still being tabulated and the cause of this late night blaze remains under an active investigation.
