19:04 hrs / 2000 River Road - CarTech / Box 0703 / C Platoon
The box was transmitted for the location noted after a passerby reported flames from one of the buildings on the CarTech property off River Road. Engine 7 and Ladder 3 arrived in the gate with CarTech Security. Security confirmed active exterior fire involving a large furnace. Car 9 (Glore) established the CarTech Command. While the fire was confined to the furnace area itself and recognizing the water-reactive nature of the processes involved, a precautionary, dry 2 1/2" hoseline was stretched should the need have arisen to protect any of the exposed portions of the large industrial building itself or the fuel supplies. All operations were in coordination with CarTech FD Engine 74 and plant personnel. Facility personnel were able to secure the fuel supply to the furnace, thereby largely extinguishing the fire and eliminating any immediate hazard. The incident was placed under control at 19:47 hrs.
