April 19th at 8:51hrs, Taunton Engine 6, along with mutual aid companies, were activated for a possible Residential Fire in the Onondaga Hill Fire District. Initial calls reported smoke in a residence. Taunton Engine 6 (FF Martin) and Car 1 (Chief Phelan) responded. Incoming units were updated that multiple callers reported heavy smoke from the apartment. Onondaga Hill Car 2 arrived and reported heavy smoke and fire from a 2 story apartment, declaring a signal 99. Soon after, the 99 was upgraded to a second alarm.
